"i must concur with my friend above . this is a supurb evening with john and friends . the sound and picture are really excellent . i recall seeing john and his working quartet (joe lovano,dennis irwin and bill stewart) circa "what we do" visit new smyrna beach . john's parents lived nearby and he and the fellas had just come down from new york city . the quartet songs performed here can be heard on several sco projects including "flat out" , "meant to be" and his first blue note record "time on my hands". the duets remind me of john's work with mccoy tyner on the project "things ain't what they used to be" (blue note) intimate , bluesy and lovely . to have also performed a couple songs with the remarkable marvin smith and don pullen make for a truly mind bending evening of creative collaberation . an absolute must have for jazz guitar fans and sco fans and deep musician lovers . what a discovery ."

"I was really getting this for the quartet - but too bad there's no Bill Stewart... but those tracks are still nice, and not much Sco/Lovano available on DVD. What really knocked me out was the organ trio /Don Pullen - really "smokinnnn" - Confirmation - They sound great! These tracks alone are 5 Star.
Anybody not familiar w Sco's blues roots will appreciate the duos w Dr John."
Proves a point

"John Scofield deliberately chooses to play in every possible situation to earn his title as virtuoso. He can carry any band and at the same time share the spotlight. He earned his wings with Miles Davis and shows that genuis was not lost on him. Now he is a player in his own right and this presentation solidifies his place in guitar history. He is comfortable in any style and is a student of his instrument. I'm sure he never stops learning and continues to hone his craft. This is a must for any guitar fan and will diversify any collection."
