'Live at Montreux 2003' [Blu-ray]
(Jamiroquai / Blu ray / (2007) 2009 / Eagle Rock)
Overview: In 2003, Jamiroquai brought their signature blend of danceable pop back to the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival. On this, their 3rd appearance at Montreux, charismatic front man Jay Kay and his crew rocked the crowd for two hours, bringing an eclectic new vibe to the Swiss musical showcase.
DVD Verdict: I've been getting into Jamiroquai over the last few years, and was excited to finally pick up this concert DVD. Within the first few songs I knew this was going to be a fantastic concert experience. Most of the classics, new and old, are here. It also includes the catchy unreleased "Shoot The Moon", which if you're like me, you'll be singing to yourself for many days after.
This performance also includes the greatest version of "Cosmic Girl" I have ever heard. It's so good in fact, that I'm bummed to not have an audio version of it on a CD release. "Traveling Without Moving" is another very memorable song on this Blu ray/DVD... especially for those of you like me who appreciate amazing bass work.
Overall, this performance has it all! Fantastic musicianship (killer bass, amazing keyboard work and busy percussion), Jay's spot-on vocals, great songs, colorful lights, and a great chilled-out atmosphere. Even the band's moments of spontaneity and humor in between songs are refreshing and entertaining. It has already placed itself among my very favorite concert blu rays/DVDs.
If you're a Jamiroquai fan already, you'll absolutely love this Blu ray/DVD!! It's a must have for your collection! If you're not a fan or aren't familiar with Jamiroquai yet... watch this and you WILL be! [RB] This is a Widescreen presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
