Ex-Nightwood maestro tag-teamed up a fine menu with Ned Elliott's crew
DAILY Food  April 25, 2014, by Wayne Alan Brenner

"...For instance, when Clapton came through the Frank Erwin Center in 1995, he was in full blues, revival mode - none of the hits - and the show was a real snooze (literally). Out in support of Pilgrim, his first album of new material in nine years, ol' Slowhand's foray into "smooth blues" may be having the same effect on his fans as "smooth jazz" has on jazz classicists, but one thing is certain: Pilgrim feasts on Clapton's most delicious guitar work since before the death of his son at the turn of this decade..."
