~  TRAFFIC  ~ 


Angleterre  -  progressif psychédélique  -  ** 


Steve Winwood  a formé  Traffic  au printemps 1967, sabordant par la
même occasion le  
Spencer Davis Group  original alors en pleine gloire.
Steve  jouait assidûment depuis quelque temps déjà avec des copains
de la région de Birmingham :
Jim Capaldi ( batteur ), Chris Wood  ( flûtiste
et saxophoniste ) et  
Dave Mason ( guitariste chanteur ),  il produiront une musique naviguant entre pop psychedelique, rock, blues et jazz sous
couvert de progressif, cela donnant au groupe un son absolument unique.
