"This DVD of Rit's is both a potpouree of who's who in his many earlier cd's, and a real treat for those who have not seen them together live.He has the usual group of "technicians" in the sets, but he adds Joao Bosco and Paulinho da Costa, from the "FESTIVAL" CD sessions, and makes it all come alive. That set alone makes this a MUST to "Captain Fingers" fans. It is, a must amoung the sadly small choices of great jazz music dvd's. You'll love it, and it's 2 for 1 ! WOW!"

"Trust me, this CD is NOT in Japanese. Both Joao Bosco and Phil Perry sing BRAZILIAN songs sung in the native tongue of Brazil. And I don't remember Lee singing at all, not even backup.Not mentioned is two tunes featuing Rit and Steve Lukather (of Toto). They both light up "Cause We've Ended as Lovers" and finish with a BRAZILIAN song sung by Phil Perry. Some cool tunes with Tuck and Patti and a couple of tunes from "Stolen Moments.""

"Outstanding- Lee Ritenour has come a long way he always shows great musicianship.I've been a fan of this guy for years,if you look at this line up then you'lle agree that this was actually the start of "Fourplay" Bob James,Harvey Mason and Lee Ritenour only one guy joined later and that is Nathan East.But these cats are always together and they are some of the best muzos around the world.Buy this DVD because there are so many extras in the line up Paulino da Costa,Joao Bosco and Anthony Jackson.As music lovers we have to understand that you can not buy a 80's recording and expect it to sound like it was recorded today enjoy the music."
