John Mayer Trio with Pino Palladino: Chicken Grease/Cissy Strut Jam

I’ve said it before… by far, my favorite work by John Mayer is with his trio, thanks to Pino Palladino and Steve Jordan backing him up. Here’s the trio in 2005 performing a bonus jam at the end of a concert, including “Chicken Grease” and “Cissy Strut”. Each member of the band gets his own showcase, making this even better.

“Wherever I Lay My Hat (That’s My Home)” was first recorded by Marvin Gaye in 1962.

Nine Inch Nails with Pino Palladino: “All Time Low”

Nine Inch Nails stopped by to perform on the Jimmy Kimmel Show as part of their tour in support of Hesitation Marks, which was released in August.

The Who Featuring Pino Palladino: My Generation

It’s pretty telling when the top comment on a video by one of the world’s greatest rock bands is “Thumbs up if you? are here only to see Pino playing.” Here’s the one and only Pino Palladino rocking out with The Who on Later… With Jools Holland back in 2007. The bassist lays out some gnarly breaks with an octaver,...

Tedeschi Trucks Band Release “Made Up Mind” with Pino Palladino, Bakithi Kumalo and Others

The Tedeschi Trucks Band’s third full-length album, Made Up Mind hit the shelves this week. The follow up to their Grammy-winning 2011 debut, Revelator and their live album, Everybody’s Talkin’, TTB saw the return of some old routines and collaborators, and some new. The most significant to us is the absence of original bassist and long-time collaborator Oteil Burbridge, who...
