Ben Harper and Relentless7 Live from the Montreal International Jazz Festival CD/DVD - English & French Press Releases

On July 12, 2009, Ben Harper and Relentless7 captivated a massive crowd of 250,000 with a blistering performance that outshone the fireworks that accompanied it to close the Montreal International Jazz Festival on its 30th Anniversary. "What a memorable show. Ben Harper's Relentless7 sublimely inspired, rocking like hell," raves André Ménard, Creative Director of Le Festival de Jazz de Montréal.

Urgent. Infectious. Energized. That’s how Ben Harper and Relentless7 have been characterized and this special CD/DVD combo perfectly captures their impassioned artistry. Music critics praised the band's performance with statements such as: "Ben Harper and the Restless 7: worthy of fireworks" (Journal de Montreal) and "Ben Harper powerfully espresses himself. Uncompromisingly intense, the pedal to the metal." (Le Devoir).

The band too were incredibly moved by their experience of closing the esteemed Montreal Jazz Festival. "One of the greatest festivals in the world, in one of the greatest cities in the world, the Montreal International Jazz Festival has long been a musical home for me. This show was exceptionally special to myself and band because it felt like the entire city was there with us that night," says Ben Harper.

The CD/DVD which will be released on March 9, 2010 gives those who attended the opportunity to relive the excitement of this unforgettable performance. It also allows fans who missed the event a chance to still experience the magic, including exciting covers of 'Under Pressure' & 'Red House.'
