"This DVD is an amazing document of two legends that, unfortunately, most people outside of Chicago and New Orleans have never heard of. Little Brother Montgomery is in his late 70's here, but still delivers the goods. His segment is only 30 minutes, but this DVD is worth it. There's a good interview as well. This man was a huge figure in the history of the blues, but still doesn't get much of the credit he deserves. If you play jazz, blues, pop, or rock piano, you were influenced by him whether you know it or not.
Wingy Manone is also on here. He's 81 or 82 here, and still gets the job done. He is the one-armed trumpet player who is remembered not only for his horn playing, but his New Orleans jive talkin as well. He played with Bing Crosby for 5 years, and was a truely original, great performer. Even if you have never heard of these two greats, you won't be dissapointed with this DVD."
