Great but flawed DVD

"This is a fantastic DVD. Georgie Fame and class musicians such as Guy Barker on Trumpet put on a great show. There are performances of 60's hits like Yeh Yeh as well as a Mose Allison and Van Morrison songs and a few Jazz standards. So the music is great.
The DVD labelling and Amazon have got this very confused. Amazon say its region 1 and on the DVD case it says all regions and NTSC. I have tried it in a bog standard region 2 player in the UK and it plays fine. SO this is NOT region 1, which is good news if you're one of then many co.uk buyers.
On the DVD case it says Kenny Drew on Piano. Kenny Drew is not on this DVD, it also states its 90 minutes long. Wrong again its 60 minutes long. There is also no sign of when this recording was made, but I would guess it was recorded about 10 years ago.
