Music of the Day: Traffic’s Far From Home

Far From Home

I love this album, a one last grasp from Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi under the heading of Traffic. The songs are all vintage style and well crafted. As someone who used to play drums it’s also one of my favorite albums to listen to for the drumming. Capaldi doesn’t do anything fancy, there are no flourishes of showmanship or anything. What there is plenty of is pure, in the groove drumming that adds to the musicality of the songs without ever being distracting. It’s good stuff.
