"My name is Lenny Price. I have been touring and recording as the saxophonist with jazz legend Earl Klugh for more than three years.I purchased "The Jazz Channel Presents Earl Klugh (BET on Jazz)" DVD and discovered that the members of Earl's band are not credited for our performance. It seems this detail was omitted during the complicated process of preparing the packaging and end credits for this product. ...David Spradley - Keyboards; Lorenzo "Spoons" Brown - Percussion; Ron Otis - Drums; Al Turner - Bass; Al Duncan - Synthesizers; Lenny Price - Saxophones, Yamaha WX5 wind synthesizerAnd of course ... Earl Klugh - Acoustic guitarPerforming with musicians of this caliber has been both my pleasure and privilege. It was great to finally be able see our show from the audience's point-of-view. And, the outstanding image and audio quality made the experience even more rewarding!Hopefully, this information will help you all connect a little more intimately with Earl's music.... Enjoy!NOTE - Please be advised these remarks were neither made on behalf of nor endorsed by Earl Klugh or Image Entertainment."
Finest Quality DVD Audio Mix - Great Musicians

"I have 30+ music DVD's in my collection from a wide variety of artists and styles. I also have a pretty decent home theater setup that I've spent a great deal of time and money tweaking.This DVD is one of THE BEST audio recordings/mixes I have on DVD. The only other one's that compare are Eric Clapton's "One More Car, One More Rider" - DTS and Norah Jones Live - DD5.1. I can crank up this Earl Klugh DVD and it just sounds better! The mix is wonderful. Drums are nice and full in the mix (as with Clapton's) and Bass guitar and lead acoustic guitar are also clean and in the right proportion. Plus the musicians are just top-notch...particularly Klugh, the drummer, and the saxaphone player. WOW. Effortless yet highly technical playing.My only complaint is the obligitory crowd shots which are mostly way too dark (almost a completely black screen). What was the point? Otherwise the video is also excellent with good lighting, color, and detail. Should be 16:9 aspect ratio, of course, but most companies haven't figured this out yet! I wish they all would. The good news is you can jump right to the menu and skip the intro's, and the menu is simple static graphics, so you aren't waiting for some lame animation each time before you can navigate. That is something all the companies could also learn!If you love music and are even somewhat picky about audio, you will LOVE THIS DVD! PERIOD!"
Beautifully Rendered, Earl Klugh. Taking it from the Top!

"The greatest acoustic guitarist in the world, in concert. You know,Earl Klugh is a very talented guitarist and i've been wondering if he has his music on Video, until i saw this DVD and i promptly purchased it. Ever since i bought this DVD, i've been playing it each and every day, and i'm still playing it always and even till the next 20 centuries, i'm sure i'll still be playing it. I love it just like all his other tracks on CD. Every time i listen to this Great DVD, i feel at home, and at please with my number one Jazz artist in the Whole World.The Compilations are great and each tracks are beautifully rendered with a Grand Masters touch that can only come from no other acoustic guitarist than my Main-Man, Earl Klugh. I do recommend this DVD to all Jazz lovers in the Universe. It's a Great Collection."
A must-have selection

"First of all, Earl Klugh's style is original, his technique is awesome, and his melodies melt in your heart, not in your ears. Secondly, the quality of the DVD is great. I watched it on my PC monitor and found smooth video graphics. Whether you like jazz or not, you'll enjoy this selection. The only thing missing is the credits for the band members. They're awesome performers and a pleasure to watch, be it in improvising or backing. I hope the producers won't forget to include them next time."

"I share the same reaction with Lenny Price. I initially checked out this DVD from a local library and I was really thrilled. I've been listening to Earl since the early 70's back in the Philippines. I've been collecting musical dvds (as my kids take most of the movies) and I can only honestly say that the audio quality is superb not to mention the selection of the songs. Indeed the supporting artists deserve the proper credits. I was actually curious about the different musicians that played with Earl and thanks to Lenny. Now I can buy two copies to be shared to my brothers back in the Philippines for them to enjoy/treasure"
