Never Got To Watch This Due To Viewing "Glitch"

"Based on other reviews, I was really looking forward to seeing this DVD. When I received it, there was an error message saying to remove the DVD because the "region" was not authorized. I called Amazon and was told that it was not to be viewed in Asia, and because I'm in the U.S., I should be able to view it. They immediately sent out a replacement DVD and a postage-paid return label. When I received the replacement DVD, I got the same error message. (I've viewed many other DVDs from Amazon without having this problem.) When I called for the second time, Amazon suggested a refund of my payment, which I accepted with disappointment. I'm not sure how other U.S. folks managed to view the DVD. I wish I could have! I'm hoping this review will cause someone to look into the problem."
Greatest Classic Jazz Video Ever!

"It's just phenomenal that TV producer Robert Herridge with the Ominbus program "The Sound Of Jazz" had the taste and chops to bring together in one studio all of these master star geniuses of the 40's,& 50's to play all these classic swing and bebop tunes in a row...This is all pure stuff from Billie Holliday meets The Count Basie Band with the Hawk (Coleman Hawkins) the Pres (Lester Young) and Geri Mulligan looking fourteen years old, like even before his hooking up with Chet Baker. Then add the legendary Ben Webster, Pee Wee Russel, Freddie Green, and Papa Joe Jones on drums, Roy Eldrige, "Little Jazz" playing a screaming high stratospheric trumpet solo with Billie singing on "Fine and Mellow", then Pres taking his fantastic poignant solo..& on comes Thelonius Monk to introduce Basie to his brand of bebop genius with "Blue Monk" and then arriving on his heels the most famous quintet of all times Miles Davis & John Coltrane doing "Sketches of Spain" and "So What"...come on!
This one video is singularly the jazz gem of all times!"
