Movie Reviews

The California Consumer | 06/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is what happens when you get a collection of some of the world's best jazz musicians, very talented vocalists, and Carlos Santana on one stage together...just a spectacular performance!

Santana and his band are worth the price of admission alone but add Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin(Santana's mentor back in the 70's), Wayne Shorter, Ravi Coltrane plus Stevie Winwood from Traffic fame, and a collection of wonderful female vocalists and you have one of the very best concert DVD's in a long time. The people attending this concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival saw a history making performance.

Add to this, the camera work was excellent and the sound spot-on. The selections of songs were very eclectic, with pices ranging from, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Harry Bellafonte, and of course Santana. Often, when you get too many front-line musicians on the stage together, it can sound like a train wreck but that never happens here. There seems to be a real sense of symbiosis, all the pieces fall together perfectly.

If you want to see Santana perform his more popular songs get, "Supernatural Live" or the "Santana Live By Request" DVD's.

However, if you want to see "real performers" performing at the highest level, playing songs that inspire them, while having a great time, get this DVD."

"Just got my HD DVD version of this, it just came out. the other reveiwers are refering to the DVD version, which is the same sonically at least except for the DTS true HD sound track. Anyway this is an amazing line up for Carlos, everyones here Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ravi Coltrane, John McLaughlin, Steve Winwood, Nile Rodgers, Omar Hakim, and of course Chester Thomson on drums. What an amazing line up. The video is clear and crisp in HD as it should be, The sound track I used DTS True HD fantastic what else can I say? If you have an HD DVD player and love music this is a MUST BUY! If I was not going to own it on HD DVD I would buy the DVD version. Great disc, great band, great guests ! BUY IT NOW!"
Forget it if you are looking for classic Santana

"I am not a jazz person, but I am a 50 year old head-banger that grew up on 70's rock.

If you like the jazz-phase of Santana, then I cannot comment. However if you were looking for "Evil Woman", "Oyo como va", etc. then you won't find it here. This is not classic Santana. That's what I wanted but this DVD does not deliver that.

Let me point anyone who has a nice hi-def setup and is into classic rock to Heart - Live in Seattle and The Eagles Farewell Tour #1, both 5 star HD productions...and the artists are true to their roots and are perfect and professional.

HD Concert experience in it's Best

"Outstanding Visuals and Sound Quality, loving music by Santana it was so exiting to be almost present on this Concert. One of the best Concert HD experiences I can recommend. Also if you really would like to explore the possibilities of sound in HD try this Disc:
Uncommon Bach - Music Experience in 3-Dimensional Sound Reality TM [HD DVD DTSHD Surround Music Disc]
This is defiantly something I never heard before.
