Traffic was among the most successful of the second wave of "the British invasion" circa 1967. Comprised of Stevie Winwood, Dave Mason, Chris Wood and Jim Capaldi, the band pioneered "group songwriting" (which ultimately led to Mason's early departure. and forged an innovative blend of rock, blues and jazz elements which saw them acheive considerable chart success on both sides of the Atlantic. Jim Capaldi enjoyed a long songwriting collaboration with Winwood, and several of the band's hits were co-written by the team. This loving DVD concert tribute to Capaldi, who passed away in 2005 due to cancer, features a nice array of stars and lesser known, though excellent, session musicians performing in London's legendary Roundhouse, where Traffic itself first shot to fame 40 years ago.
