A big rip-off
M. O'Steen | Scranton, PA, USA | 06/27/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Although the music is first rate, the film is missing frames and the sound is often out of sync. Also, two titles listed in the table of contents both on the box and on the disk menu are not on the disk!!... SALT PEANUTS and BE BAB A LEE'BA are missing!! Furthermore, Charlie Parker, after receiving top billing on the DVD is only in one number, HOT HOUSE!! Finally, to make matters worse one number not listed anywhere on the jacket or disk is a performance not of Diz or Bird but of two obscure dancers!?!?

Granted the missing numbers can be found on many Lps, tapes, Cds and DVDs,but this DVD is a rip-off!!!! $17.00 and misleading in terms of content? The companies compiling, packaging, distributing, and finally selling this product should be ashamed of themselves!

Jazz fans be warned. Do not buy this product! There are better ones out there, not to mention ones honestly advertised.

Signed, Disappointed and angry in PA"
