Amazon Review Is Terribly Misguided
Big Rob | Washington D.C. | 08/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am astonished that Sam Graham from is reviewing a jazz performance! Not to be too harsh but you missed the point guy! The whole structure of Jazz is to JAM and these players turn it out full steam ahead! Listen to the early guys that wrote the real stuff; Coltrane, Bird, Ellington,Miles for heaven sake, it was not all melody. There is a thing in Jazz called improvisation, and that is what is happening on the CASINO LIGHTS '99 DVD. A Jazz student could study this recording for a long time with all the different musical creations that take place on it. Check out some of the lines George Duke is playing behind some of the solos! Besides, it is great to see Kirk Whalum playing just as good as Garrett, and Boney demonstrates some serious ability here as well. Finally a few of the smooth jazz guys are letting the world know that they can play too! BUY THIS DVD you wont regret it! These are some of the most respected players alive today, and sorry Sam, if you didn't like this recording you must not like Jazz."
It is a must for the modern jazz listener

"This is an excellent DVD. The Bob James Trio, Kenny Garrett plays "Wayne's Thang" and clears the stage. It is excellent, fourplay (the original 4), Larry Carlton, Boney James, George Duke it is like the who's who of jazz on one DVD."
Just buy it!

"Simply Brilliant! Worth the price just to watch Gabriela sing Fire of Love (10). Bob James and Fourplay are the icing on the cake!"
Awesome Allstar Artists!!!

"Excelent. Not a bad perfomance in the group. Pruduction, staging, sound quality, everything, A+. The adlib solos when all the artist come back on stage doing, Always There and Watermelonman, are just astounding. Can't say enough about the caliber of these musicians."
