A DVD of the last video recorded that reunited jazz legends
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 06/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Benny Golson: The Whisper Not Tour is a DVD of the last video recorded that reunited jazz legends Benny Golson, Art Farmer, and Curtis Fuller, along with special guest Jon Hendricks. A multiple-camera video production showcasing Golson's compositional and performance talents, Benny Golson: The Whisper Not Tour includes some of Golson's most beloved classics in non-standard form, enhanced by Hendricks' dulcet voice. The performed songs include "Are You Real?", "Out of the Past", "Blues March", "I Remember Clifford", and "Whisper Not." Bonus DVD features include a Benny Golson biography and gallery, as well as bonus musical and concert performance footage. A treat for jazz enthusiasts.

Composer and master saxophonist in action

"
There is a special empathy around Mr. Golson. I think it begins with his lyrical compositions more than with his master command in his sax playing and more than with simpathetic look. Happens that Mr. Golson is also a unique player. Also happens that he looks so gentle a man.

Golson counts on his long time trumpet player associate, another master, Mr. Art Farmer. Seems like they were born together. Rhythm section is also brilliant, featuring Geoff Keezer at the piano, as brilliant as young.

Repertoire includes the title song 'Whisper Not', one of the great jazz standards composed by Golson.

Also Jon Hendricks shows his artistry in some Golson material as great as ever.

Features an uncommon image and color quality. Recorded in Europe."
This one is a must have!

"This DVD is what a good concert should be, It is of great
quality, both visual and audio. If you are familiar with
jazz, you know these guys are top shelf musicians that
created a sound in the 50s and 60s, that still sounds
modern. This one, you will treasure."
