What a disappointment

"The anguish I went through to finish watching this disc. Tommy Flanagan plays impeccably, but his side men trashed the performance. Bass man Betts rushed all the tempi to where drummer Durham had no choice but try and keep up with him. Tommy tried to keep the tempi down but Betts kept playing way to far ahead of the beat to where it felt like a runaway train.
Compared to the rest of the Norman Granz series the sound is not the best on this one. The bass is over miched and the overall balance of the three instruments are uneven. The only saving grace were the slow tracks where the tempi remained steady.
Tommy deserved better. I'll probably never watch this video again. I don't recommend it."
