Gotta' Get This One!
Robert G. Rutkas | Chicago, Il. | 01/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a lifelong fan of Phil Woods, I found this DVD to be a great addition to my library.

This DVD give us a wonderful insight into the trials and triumphs of this great jazz musician. The setting takes place in a recording studio as they are putting together Phil's album, "This Is How I Feel About Quincy." (This album is also available from Amazon and is highly recommended.)

I have followed Phil since the "Sixties" when I first heard him play. I also am a saxophonist.
It is very common for a young player to model their technique on a master. Phil Woods was mine, and remains so to this very day.

Phil's mastery of the alto sax is demonstrated in this DVD. Listen to "The Quintessence," a smokey/moody tune written by Q. This performance is a great forum for Phil's masterful technique, rich and glossy.

He is simply the best.

This DVD is a "must have" if you want the inside scoop on the history of the foremost altoist in jazz."
