Steve Winwood — Arc of a Diver

I have fol­lowed Steve Winwood for a long time, through his days with Traffic, Blind Faith, and his solo career. This is his sec­ond solo effort and my favorite. Although it’s a bit “pop­pish,” it sounds great and it is tru­ly a solo project, Winwood plays all instruments.
