Movie Reviews

Kenny Drew Live
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kenny Drew-Piano, Alvin Queen-Drums, Neils-Henning Orsted Pedersen-Bass What a fabulous DVD. It was recorded in 1992 in England live. This is one of the tightest rhythm sections you'll ever hear. All three are masters at their instruments."

"if you like jazz - "kenny drew live - may be the best issued dvd format material to enjoy. "kenny drew live" - 5 stars. sorry for a "no" 5.1 channel sound - the man died to early (1994). look to more dvd's like "kenny drew live"."
Great music and great footage

(5 out of 5 stars)

"In addition to the great music, this DVD has excellent footage of all the players (not just Kenny Drew) including closeups of their hand (and foot) techniques. The trio members share the spotlight equally and hence the camera-time is quite evenly distributed among them although most of the solos are for Kenny Drew and NHØP with one lengthy solo for Alvin Queen. Queen does however still shine through on all the songs.Kenny Drew is excellent without being too fancy and although NHØP exhibits his usual electric-sounding tone as a result of his choice of amplification gear, his notes and intonation are faultless and impressive.Watch out for the interesting introduction to St. Thomas from NHØP and Alvin Queen.If I could wish for just one thing it would be more songs as the trio plays only one set of five songs. It makes me wonder whether there was another set that did not make it to the DVD for some reason."
