A reunited John Mayer Trio enjoyed their first TV performance in nearly five years with a showing last week on the new Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Mayer, bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan were joined by Chick Corea, Manolo Badrena and Wallace Roney for a jazzy cover of JJ Cale’s “After Midnight.”
Mayer, who recently returned to Twitter after quitting the social media platform in September 2010, sent out this tweet after the show:
“Watched it back and I have to say: cool on the part of @latenightseth to feature 4:30 of a song from the ’70s played mostly instrumental.”
The trio is also working on a new album.
Watch the performance clip below, featuring Palladino on his ’61 Fender P Bass and Mayer sounding terrific as he plays through the new Fender ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb amps.
