"THE HIGH QUALITY OF THE PERFORMANCES MAKE THIS DVD WELL WORTH OWNING. MUSICIANS ARE RELAXED AND CALIFORNIA'S PAUL MASSON WINERY PROVIDES A COMFORTABLE CONCERT SETTING. BONUS TRACK FEATURES HUTCHERSON PLAYING WITH THE SAME McCOY TYNER BAND AS ON THE COMPANION DVD. NOT A TECHNICAL MASTERPIECE, BUT STILL VERY ENJOYABLE."

"The selection of material on this DVD doesn't make any sense ! Other than the fact that both Bobby Hutcherson and Flora Purim (plus Airto) played at the same location there is no musical reason to put the two together on a DVD. This material is historical and important to own for anybody who likes these musicians. However it is appalling how the original shows have been butchered here. At least the Hutcherson fans get a good bite. But Flora Purim fans get a short teaser and than it is done. Only one song is given to us out of a significant show that was performed in 1980. The entire show (about 60min) used to be available on VHS under the title 'Harvest Jazz'. Why not releasing the show in its entirety on DVD ? One song is still better than nothing. So if you are desperate enough buy it."
