"Even if your familiar with Pat Metheny, it's still unbelievable. This an outstanding performance by a group of artists. His opening solo just blew away! I've never seen or heard any thing like it, a 4 neck guitar?? This would be so awesome on Blu-ray in DTS Master Audio, I hope they do it soon! This is Sooooo recomended to any Pat Metheny, Jazz or music fan of many tastes that I can't express enough how much you should own this. It makes all my other 5's look like 3's and 4's.

I wish Amazon had a 3 criteria rating that would make for a quicker, more accurate and fair rating of Cd's, DVD's and Blu-ray's.

1. Performance
2. Quality of Audio
3. Quality of Video (for DVD's and Blu-ray's)


Artists that wish to have there performances recorded and recognized should be held to a standard. Poor Audio or Video, no matter how good the performance, is still a bad product. Those who would still purchase sub-standard Audio or Video quality recordings and rank that product highly just because of performance are not doing the industry or the band justice. Demand better and we will get it, settle for less and that's what you'll get."
Beautifully captures it all...

"I knew of Pat Metheny through the 1980s but never listened to him until I bought the 'Imaginary Day' CD in 1998. As a result I luckily saw that tour in 1998 in Richmond, Va. The show was simply...beautiful and vivid. I always wished that a DVD existed of that night...and just stumbled across this one with Dolby Digital and DTS.

This 1998 show at what looks like the Paul Masson winery in California captures that time perfectly. As I sit in front of my home theater I have my 4-week old daughter in my arms and she is mesmermized by the sound...her first musical experience. I'm biased and not going to write a long review except to say this is a 5-star DVD to me...because it appears my little girl is as astonished by Pat and his band as I was 12 years ago. Thanks guys...

*This appears to be re-release of the 2001 out-of-print DVD. Yes the video can be grainy in some darkly lit tunes but given the venue in 1998 it's par for the course. Some reviews on the original DVD didn't like the occasional split-screen matting. I never noticed it until I read the reviews."
