Movie Reviews

The Reference Standard Jazz Band
Bay Area Conservative | CA United States | 10/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you love smooth jazz, with an emphasis on smooth, then you must be aware of the band called FOURPLAY. This live recording is proof-positive of the genius of each member of this extraordinary band. Harvey Mason makes playing the drums look effortless and reminds everyone of us when we first discovered how much fun it seemed being a drummer must be. Bob James is the reference standard for today's would-be jazz pianist, and this DVD shows off his talent very well. Nathan East and Lee Ritenour are dazzling in their performances as are the guests, Phillip Bailey, Phil Perry, and none other than CHAKA KAHN! This DVD is a "Must-Have" for anyone who enjoys seeing and hearing great, smooth, contemporary jazz."
Terrific musicianship....wonderful footage!

"Lee Ritenour is just amazing as is Bob James (Key) Nathan East (b) and Harvey Mason (D). This is one supergroup that really gels live..and is a generous DVD as well(over 100 min.)...but GEEZ when are the idiots that design the covers for these things going to get it right? Nathan East and Lee Ritenour are NOT lefthanded players like they are pictured on the cover...this kind of sloppy artwork always detracts from products...can someone with a brain check these things before they go to press?"
Smooth & Relaxing Jazz!

"This is a great DVD for obvious reasons.You get a talented group like Fourplay to perform many of their hits in front of a small crowd, and the sound is outstanding.The visuals are perfect, and you get to see each member up close! The guest stars are a nice bonus too! Philip Bailey (of Earth Wind & Fire), Phil Perry (needs to learn some restraint! ), and the 'fabulous' Chaka Khan, who shows why she is popular among Jazz musicians. If you love contemporary jazz, invest in this DVD!"

"I agree with Daniel A. Hess. I am a long time Lee Ritenour fan, and have everything he has released on vinyl, CD, VHS and DVD. The VHS/DVD's vary in quality and performance. Some have good video and fair audio. Some have good audio and fair video. The perfomance,camera work and audio are excellent here, and they look like they're really having fun performing together. Even though I am also a Larry Carlton fan, I wish Lee had stayed with Fourplay.
The only drawback is this should have a Dolby 5.1 or DTS soundtrack."
