"I'm a big, long time fan of A.J. I recently went to his concert here in So. Calif. I could go for hours praising his style, skills and ability to create some beautiful and yet complex music. I also purchased this DVD with high expectations. First, I should have known better when the enclosure did not detail recording date, etc., which is circa 1981 or close to that.(You can purchase this concert on CD). This is just a rehash of something in the vault that should have never been published. As the reviewer above mentions, the video and audio quality are poor. Listen to some of his recent or previous TelArc/Atlantic recordings and you know. Im not sure if he has any control of what is or is not released to his audience. But this is not what I suspect he would/should provide to his fans. I hope his mangement reads this and pulls this DVD out of the shelves. We deserve better and so does he."
Great to see Jamal in action!

"I can't understand the previous negative reviews. This is Ahmad Jamal we're talking about here, after all! Sure this wasn't the best concert I've seen, but I thought the production was pretty good. I, for one was grateful to actually see Mr. Jamal close-up and watch his hands. As a piano player myself, I find his technique simply awesome! He makes it seem so effortless...The only drawbacks, in my opinion are the short length (only 60 mins) and the sound levels were a bit low. Jamal plays one set with his trio and then a second set with vibraphonist Gary Burton. Forget what the other reviewers said - if you like Ahmad Jamal or a good jazz trio, you'll like this."

"Having heard him live, and owning his LP's and CD's I wanted this DVD.I was very disappointed! The video was very poor (1/5), and the audio is mediocre (1/5)! Even if you like Jamal, do not buy this dvd!"
A great musician, but a terrible DVD

"I am a great fan of Jamal's music and I happened to come across a discounted copy of this DVD in a music store.
I was so utterly disappointed.The quality of both,the audio and the video are extremely poor.Please do not waste your money buying this DVD.
