"Any opportunity to see and hear a universally acclaimed jazz legend talk about his craft is like finding a rare gem, especially when the artist is of the caliber of Phil Woods. He's been there, he's done it, he's played with a who's who of jazz icons throughout his career and has established the benchmark for jazz alto saxophone post Bird. He is a consummate musician who is well schooled in a wide range of musical styles and is not shy about sharing his views on his career, the music industry and other interesting subject matter. It is also very interesting to hear his comments as he listens to three amateur groups and passes on valuable advice about their performances. And we get to hear him play some duo jazz that showcases his extraordinary talent and musicality. Highly recommended for jazz players, educators and jazz fans who want to understand more about the motivation, dedication to his craft and humor of one of this nations finest creative artists."
