Movie Reviews

They should told us that this is a product catalogue

"Buyer beware. This is not a compilation DVD. This is actually a product catalogue. 75-80% of the performer didn't make it through the end of the song. Some lasts at the intro (the Billy Cobham's drum solo/intro, and they lists all the Cobham's band member that barely played any single not at all). Although the artists delivered incredible performances, I still really really totally dissapointed with this DVD. So, buy it only if you need a preview/catalogue of the TDK DVD products. Otherwise, a big NO..."
You don't interupt art !!!

"What can I say. If you like appetizers with with no main course this is the disc for you. This disc at first glance looks to be the motherlode that many jazz fans have been searching for on DVD. The lineups are spectacular. The filming and sound is pretty much excellent throughout. So what's wrong? These are ticklers. They are basically 4 minute segments from other TDK filmed concerts. They end uncerimoniously in mid solo, with a few exceptions (McCoy Tyner manges to complete Naima in the required time limit). I find it very upsetting to fade out in the middle of a Joe Henderson solo. This is the rule not the exception. So what is a jazz fan to do? Just try to find the concert films on line !! You will only find the total collection at Amazon UK for very hefty prices. If the material were accessible at reasonable prices I would applaude this disc. As it is I found it upsetting, to say the least."
