"I own the other dvd by the Super Guitar Trio with the same line up. I am not sure but believe it was recorded at Nightstage in Boston. This Montreux release is better. I'm gonna take some heat for saying this but I think Bireli blows away the other players. Dimeola is no doubt incredble, and has amazing right hand power and precision. He is great at the muted runs and has an intense articulation when he plays. However, Dimeola uses reverb effects to dramatize his perfomance when Bireli uses nothing. Bireli doesnt read and it's wild to see the other two players site- reading on a difficult piece when Bireli does it by ear and memory. I am curious as to why, or if there is any particular decision-making dynamics in why Dimeola is in the middle always, and why is guitar is clearly louder? Dont get me wrong I love Dimeola, but I just believe Bireli is more creative and just way less predictible. Coryell is good but his strenght is not speed, it's in his melodies. You cant go wrong buying this DVD..IT COOKS. BUY the Bireli "Paris" DVD and see this guy play mind-blowing electric as well as bass! He was friends with Jaco and a huge fan...Bireli is a great bass player too! Bireli lagrene is one of the top players in the world today in both the jazz and gypsie genres."

"Superb concert, well filmed, lots of close-ups. Not quite enough of Bireli, but that was the show, absolutely superb. Good length at 91 mins, shows how acoustic guitar can be more exciting than electric, even for rock fans. Buy it, you won't be disappointed."
