Along with Massive Attack and Tricky, Portishead was part of the Bristol triumvirate that popularized Triphop in the early nineties. But
what made them stand out was their added elements of Cool Jazz, Acid House and soundtrack samples to their slow, elastic beats,
creating an atmospheric and seductive sound that appealed to a broad audience. In 1998, when they realized that fans were swapping
bootlegs of their live shows like crazy, Portishead decided to capture a unique performance. 'Roseland NYC Live' was a one night stand of
sorts at the New York City Roseland Ballroom, where Geoff Barrow, Adrian Utley and Beth Gibbons were joined by the 35-piece New York
Philharmonic Orchestra. These new arrangements gave a new sense of dramatic tension, and in the process they created one of the most
breathtaking albums of the genre.
