Episode #6 of the LMP features Jason Mraz and company from their 2006 fall tour. If you've never heard Mr. A-Z live you will be in for a pleasant treat. This show, at least, is a more stripped down version of his songs than you might hear on the radio (and it works very well). Jason's voice really shines when you pair it up with some acoustic guitars and a conga drum. This concert also features the talents of another singer/songwriter, Raul Midon, whose voice really matches up well with Jason's. If you want to hear a good example of this check out Midon's song Keep on Hoping which can be downloaded on Itunes here .
Jason and his band also know how to have a good time on stage and the crowd that night was more than willing to follow along. At one point in the concert they stop the music to play something called the Song Game. In the Song Game, Jason asks the audience to come up with several phrases and he then uses those to spontaneously create a song. I didn't include this in the podcast because it would take up too much time but it is definitely worth downloading the full show to listen to it.
I'll stop my rambling about this one and let you form your own opinion about it. Hope you enjoy!
