Imagine an Elvis Costello concert. You’re probably envisioning a sold-out arena, practically overflowing with fans. Instead, try imagining this same concert, only at the New York Public Library.

Now, picture a Death Cab For Cutie concert at the Brooklyn Museum, or Adele playing at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club. These “venues” may seem rather unconventional, but for the PBS television series Live from the Artists Den, that’s the point.

“The playing is extraordinary as you’d expect and the gentlemanly Plant allows room for improvisation. Zeppelin gems such as “Gallows Pole” and “Tangerine” are logical choices, but even “Black Dog,” “Ramble On” and a set closing “Rock and Roll” reverberate with fresh vibrancy as the American musicians funnel this British rock through their own sensibilities and history. The terrific camera work and beautifully mixed surround sound are just cherries on top of a riveting and extraordinarily conceived performance.”
