Ben Harper - Pleasure & Pain
Inhaltsangabe zu Ben Harper - Pleasure & Pain:
At a time when music comes in three basic flavors—bubblegum, bitter and bland—Ben Harper’s succulent blend of bluesy grit, honeyed folk and brown sugary rock ‘n roll is a feast to savor. Seven years after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, Welcome to the Cruel World, Harper remains oblivious to trend and unshakably true to his muse, crafting songs of fragile beauty and Zeppelin-esque bombast with raw, spiritual intensity. Albums such as Fight For Your Mind, Will To Live and Burn To Shine have garnered worldwide acclaim, showcasing the emotional depth and musical eclecticism of Harper and his band, the Innocent Criminals (bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Dean Butterworth and percussio-nist David Leach). Within those discs, you can hear the history of American music—delta blues, R&B, traditional jazz, rootsy folk and classic rock—infused with tinges of reggae and Middle Eastern melodies. At the center of it all is Harper’s rapturous tenor—evocative, entrancing and extraordinary—singing of love, religion and social consciousness. It’s no wonder he’s garnered a fanatical following, a group The New York Times described as “admirers who make bootleg recordings of his shows and obsess on the Internet about his always-changing set lists.” In a review of a Harper concert that ran earlier this year, the paper wrote, “The audience appeared transfixed, as if undergoing a religious experience. Such reverence was beyond that seen at everyday concerts.” Ben Harper - Pleasure & Pain
