Good quality video and sound, and Billy is smokin!
Rene Gonzalez | Amherst, MA United States | 10/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I also own the other Glass Menagerie DVD. Both of them are good and good quality, but something about the Glass M. DVD was lacking in terms of the drums power. You could hear the drums...but the bass drum was almost non-existent. And the DVD was delving TOO much into the really weird, psychedelic period of BIlly Cobham (which is cool, but gets tiring quick). I was also sad that it didn't have Red Baron and Stratus. NOW I'm happy.

This new DVD has better quality (filmed a decade later), the band is top-notch, Billy is straight having fun and doing some of the most complex I've seen him do (and I've seen him live and spoken to him), he even winks at the audience with a sly look on his face that says, "yeah, I know I'm the best...don't you just love it?". And best of all, he plays Stratus and Red Baron! YES!

Buy this DVD RIGHT NOW if you are a Cobham fan. The Glass M. is good, but this one is the best out so far."
Excellent Talent for a Great Fusion Band

"I've seen Coham around the same time this DVD was filmed and he is at his best on this DVD. His band members all originating from Europe, 2 from Germany and 1 from Amsterdam is extremely talented. Rita Marcotulli on key boards is one of the best female keyboardist I've ever heard. I was surprised to see Wolfgang Scmidt, who was originally the bassist for Passport (one of my favorite fusion bands) is on this DVD. He is a great bass player and shows some of his talents on Stratus. Peter Wolpl, guitarist who I am not very familiar with is great also. Nippy Noya, percussionist is very good also. If you are into fusion/jazz/funk you will love this DVD. My only drawback is that it is only in dolby stereo but the sound is good and the video is good also, better than Glass Menagerie which I also own."
Buy this if you like Billy Cobham

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is a much better recording than the Glass Menagerie DVD. There is a great line up of players and they even remembered to turn the snare drum mic on. Good chemistry between the players. Billy is on top of it and looks like he's having a great time. I was very impressed by Rita Marcotulli (keyboards) from Rome. I highly recommend this DVD for Billy Cobham fans."
The DVD I Have Been Waiting For
Mark A. Wellman | Plaucheville, LA United States | 02/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD sounds good and looks good. The song selection is good too. Billy really seemed to be enjoying himself. My only critique is that the bass guitar is low in the mix. I have about thirty concert DVDs, and this one has made it in to my top five."
