Album Review

With a swampy sound to match its cover art, California's Tea Leaf Green relies on a bouncy bed of Trevor Garrod's vintage analog keyboards. The result is a cool, breezy, and relaxed feel distinct to West Coast bands, with harmonies and melodies influenced by the kings of summery suburban rock, the Steve Miller Band. The band is less successful when venturing into country & western, such as on "I Believe" and "Sea Monkeys." There is a little experimentation with other forms, such as on the Frank Zappa-influenced vocal oddity of "Sister Said." The band's lyrical styles fall into the usual jam band category of lighthearted stoner observations with occasional attempts to invest the images with meaning ("Sea Monkeys"). When the band makes forays into funk ("Hot Dog"), there is a soft sheen over the music; what Jamiacan dub does to reggae, Tea Leaf Green does to white-boy funk.

Customer Reviews

Smooth TLG

TLG keeps getting better as I search further into their roots. The first album I got of theirs was Rock N' Roll Band, and in this album, I find that even in studio they can jam out enough to keep Jam Band fans happy. To watch TLG get better and progress more in their distinct Jam Funk, it's key to get their roots heard, too, and this album makes it easy to enjoy. Easy five star. Only complaint: iTunes still isn't offering a lot of live modern Jam Band albums, and I know they are out there. That's what I'm waiting for. As far as TLG goes: Very smooth Jam Funk, in fact, some of the best.

I Believe

I Believe this has got to be one of the best albums by this San Francisco band. I stumbled upon it a few years back and became hooked on their music. I like all of their albums but this one by far is their best. If one is to own one album by this band, this is the one. This is one of those "deserted island" picks.

San Francisco-based jam band Tea Leaf Green got their start in the relationship between guitarist Josh Clark and drummer Scott Rager, who played in a high-school band together in Arcadia, CA. After graduation, Rager enrolled at San Francisco State College, where he met bassist Ben Chambers. When Clark moved to San Francisco, the three began playing together as a trio. Their first paying gig was attended by Trevor Garrod, a singer/songwriter and keyboard player who had moved to San Francisco looking...
