Product Description

Product Description

Songwriter, singer, producer and guitarist with the Tea Party, Jeff Martin brought grandeur, majesty and mystique back to rock music at a time when his peers and contemporaries were either revelling in all things punk rock, dumbing down the music for quick commercial gratification, or generally showing a lack of concern for melody, dynamics, musicianship and the manipulation of light and shade. The Tea Party endeared itself to a rabid fan base on the strength of its manic, marathon live shows, the smoky sensuality of Martin's voice, the musical expeditionary nature of the group's evolving palette of musical colours, the sheer ambitious scope of its studio recordings. But above all, the band soared on the strength of Martin's songs. Not surprisingly, Jeff Martin the solo artist is able to draw from this same well of inspiration. It is, after all, a well he dug himself. "Exile and the Kingdom" the first batch of Martin solo songs bears the same markings of greatness as do the songs he penned and lovingly recorded with his friends Jeff Burrows and Stuart Chatwood, as the Tea Party. This DVD captures an amazing night at Sydney's Enmore Theatre in September 2006 when Jeff Martin was joined onstage by very special guests the Toronto Tabla Ensemble. The Toronto Tabla Ensemble is an ever shifting aural experience which has, in its past, fused with great success; music from the west and the east. Together with Martin they reinvent and re-evaluate songs from Jeff's past and present, with a tangent toward the future.

No, this is not the hard-driven rock & roll we've seen from Martin with The Tea Party, but instead you get a feast of diverse musical experiences here. The exotic musical influences he weaved into his music before now come front & center as he he expands upon an Eastern musical journey. He's a great front man & this is a fine display of his talents. Also a bonus is the fact you don't get the frenetic editing pace so often found in concert videos, it could be slower yet for my tastes but it's nowhere near as choppy as you seem to get most times. Two thumbs up!

Quite simple: If you are a fan of music, you should have this DVD. I don't think I've ever been as entertained by a concert DVD as I was when watching Jeff Martin: Live at the Enmore Theatre.

Get it!

I wasn't overly impressed with Martin's solo album. It lacked the rock songs that we may be used to with The Tea Party.

That said, this DVD recorded in Australia in 2006 doesn't change my opinion. Around half of the tracks are off the solo album and the remainder are Tea Party songs.

This is primarily an accoustic performance. No actual drummer but with percussionists instead. Think of the Plant & Page "unplugged" DVD in terms of laid back.

Outide of just under 2 hours for the concert, there is some rehearsal footage, interview and even a scene from another concert where a guy proposes to his girlfriend on stage. Audio is in stereo only. No booklet.
