John Mayer geeft op 17 oktober zijn eerste concert in Nederland. De Amerikaanse gitarist is ook hier mateloos populair: de Melkweg was in een half uur uitverkocht. Zijn nieuwe album ‘Continuum’ verschijnt op 16 oktober in Nederland en is vorige week al uitgekomen in Amerika.Naast Steve Jordan en Pino Palladino, die je ook op het live album 'John Mayer Trio' kunt horen, spelen op 'Continuum' ook Ricky Peterson (toetsen) en Roy Hargrove (trompet) mee.

De eerste recensies zijn lovend:

“You want to know if I think he’s got the goods to become one of the guitar greats, Guy asks, I think he’s already one of the guitar greats”
- Buddy Guy on John Mayer

“…a smart, breezy album that deftly fuses his love for old-school blues and R&B with his natural gift for sharp melodies and well-constructed songs”….”Mayer displays a new command of all his musical sources” -
- Rolling Stone

"’Continuum’ has the musical gentility that's made him the favorite mellow love man of the text-messaging generation, but the lyrics tell another story. Our hero is ‘slow dancing in a burning room’ with his soon-to-be-ex lady love; he's eyeing vultures outside his door. ‘Keep me where the light is!’ he moans on the soul ranter ‘Gravity’. He's in the throes of a serious reckoning”
– Los Angeles Times
