Dave Mason, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Traffic co-founding member, is out on the road this year with an exciting new project billed as Dave Mason's Traffic Jam, which will be stopping in Selbyville Friday, July 25, on The Freeman Stage at Bayside.
Mason released his new album, "Future's Past" (Something Music/MRI) May 13, featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new materials he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The cover art illustration for "Future's Past" was done by none other than Graham Nash from a photo he made of Mason at Nash’s place in Hawaii.
Of the nine-song new release, Mason says, “There is a great version of 'Dear Mr. Fantasy’ that is kind of a rewrite. There is a version of ‘World in Changes’ that is absolutely nothing like the original, and there is a great live version that is absolutely beautiful of ‘Sad and Deep as You.’ There are two or three songs that were on a CD called '26 Letters 12 Notes' that I did seven years ago, a Robert Johnson song, ‘Come On in My Kitchen’ and a brand-new song called ‘That’s Freedom.'”
Renowned for such Traffic hits as “Feelin’ Alright” (covered by Joe Cocker) and “Hole In My Shoe” plus his solo signature tracks “We Just Disagree” and “Only You Know and I Know,” Mason’s acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. with his Traffic Jam shows.
The iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist has been touring and recording regularly since he co-founded Traffic in 1966, after which he went on to a successful and acclaimed solo career as well as recording and/or touring with artists including Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Delaney & Bonnie, Graham Nash, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Fleetwood Mac and more.
