Clapton in warm, song-based, choogly-authentic mode (as opposed to blazing blues-technician mode), the mode where you know he's been listening to the Band again and time has been expended in the company of JJ Cale.

Lan'sakes, he's even doing Hoagy Carmichael. Horns, rugboards, Hammonds and Allen Toussaint are everywhere to be heard and the temperature seldom exceeds cosy. Entirely age-appropriate, one has to say. His most engaging music in a while.
