En Concert = En Love

 This is such a great live album and film.  I would highly recommend if you like Jack Johnson's music you will love this live album and film combination.  The album has Eddie Vedder at the Bonnaroo Festival singing a awesome version of "Constellations". It also has Jack doing his song "Do you Remember" flawlessly flowing into a verse of Jimi Hendrix's "Remember".  There is also a song called "Country Roads" with Paula Fuga, she has an amazing voice and this song is almost one of my favorites on the album.  Only surpassed by "Rainbow" with G-Love ripping it up on the harmonica. I bought the Album/Film set for $23 and it has proven the best $23 I've spent all year. (Ok well maybe not the best, I did buy a great bottle of wine for more but the joy this CD has provided definitely outlasted the two hours I spent doing damage to the wine.)

Not only does Jack and his band demonstrate how creative and awesome they are but they also show how great they can be on stage.  Zack Gill from ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra) is an amazing addition to this tour, his accordion and piano playing is amazing and his back-up vocals really compliment Jack's vocals.

The Film has special guests like Mason Jennings, Ben Harper and G-Love.  I have been to a few Jack Johnson concerts so I could relate with how the crowds from the different concerts were feeling.  And I did feel a little jealous of the crowd when I saw Mason Jennings up there with Jack.  The film also provides a glimpse of how the band interacts back stage.

I highly recommend seeing Jack Johnson live if possible.  But if you can't afford it or don't have the time; listening and watching this album/film set will definitely make you feel like you have been to a show.  I love this band and I love this album.
