‘Triumvirate’ is an exciting album that brings together three of the most important musicians of the American blues-rock scene in a celebration of talent and inspiration. Mike Bloomfield, a virtuoso blues guitarist from Chicago, was involved in Bob Dylan’s switch from acoustic folk to electric rock. He performed with Al Kooper on the legendary ‘Supersession’ album and
was known as a perfectionist. John Paul Hammond, a fine singer and harmonica player was the son of the legendary Columbia A&R man John Hammond and shared his father’s love of blues. Dr. John was born Mac Rebennack in New Orleans and later became known as ‘The Night Tripper.’ His funky singing, piano and organ playing is much admired. This 1973 ‘super session’ features the trio backed by horns and a strong rhythm section on ten stomping blues tracks that include ‘Rock Me Baby’, ‘Ground Hog Blues’ and ‘Pretty Thing’.
