I bought this as a trial Blu-Ray - it's awesome! if you're a muso and you know anything about the real music scene, it'd be a crime not to have this in your library just for the house band alone: Nathan East, Paul Jackson jnr, Greg Phillinganes, Paulinho Da Costa, John Robinson and David Delhomme! But anything with Quincy Jones involved - even as a spectator can't fail to impress
The video of this concert seems to be refreshingly recorded without overdubs - so it may not be perfect but the rawness of it adds to the product. There's even a radio mic that doesn't work at one point which is reassuring for all of us in the business!
However raw it is though, the performances won't fail to put a huge smile on your face - Patti Austin performing "Makin' Whoopee" is amazingly fresh and with the likes of Petula Clark and Herbie Hancock all on the same stage, it can't fail but to create some magic. And when I say it's 'raw' that doesn't mean it's poor, it just means it hasn't been polished up in a studio afterwards which is rare nowadays!
Buy it, soak in it and play it to all your music loving friends, they'll thank you for it....
