The Montreal Jazz Festival ended last night, and the final act was Ben Harper and Relentless7. The show, in keeping with the rest of the Jazz Fest, was incredible. Rather than give an overview of the concert as I did for Patrick Watson, I just want to make one comment.
Ben Harper’s drummer (nee Jordan Richardson) is crazy. At one point he drummed by slapping the snare and cymbals with bare hands, and early in the show he used maracas as drumsticks.
In absence of any video online for the concert yet, this appearance on Jimmy Kimmel highlights the insanity pretty well.
