Following last year’s full-length LP, ‘&’, which saw him extensively collaborate with an impressive host of contemporaries and friends, including Joe Goddard, Prins Thomas and Agoria, Michael Mayer is set to contribute to the legendary DJ Kicks series. Spanning sixteen tracks, the mix finds Mayer is just as generous of a mood, composing a musical journey that spans his ever-expanding record collection, and above all, his defining instinct to share the beauty of music with others.
The follow-up to 2009's Battle Studies, 2012's Born and Raised is singer/songwriter John Mayer's fifth studio album. The album was delayed during recording due to Mayer's treatment for granulomas found near his vocal cords. Following his surgery, Mayer completed the album and debuted the leadoff single "Shadow Days" in February of 2012. While Mayer was able to finish the album, a recurrence of his granulomas forced him to cancel his tour and abstain from singing indefinitely while he received further treatment.
This DVD captures the singer/songwriter in the element where fans love him the most: live on stage. The special concert includes 3 sets: an acoustic performance, a rare set with John Mayer Trio (Mayer, Steve Jordan, and Pino Palladino), as well as a set featuring Mayer's full band, all recorded during the night of December 8, 2007 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The 22-song DVD features a one of a kind song list made up of the 3 distinct performances.
