Includes the definative live version of one of Barbara's great musical pieces, 'Shifting Sands' and her concerto for small group and brass, 'Living in the Fast Lane'. Beautifully filmed and 4 years in post production, the camera always puts you close to the action.

I first saw the jazz ensemble Paraphernalia back in 1980 at the long gone Sheffield jazz club (The old Brincliffe Oaks) when it was the original line up of BT & JH with Colin Dudman and Dill Katz. Over the years the line up has changed and evolved but one thing has remained constant throughout Paraphenalia's existence, the husband and wife team of Barbara Thompson and John Hiseman. If you haven't heard of them, or listened to their music, before the recent BBC documentary on BT's ongoing battle with Parkinson's disease, then you've missed listening to certainly one of the best jazz saxophonists of the 20th century bar none, and one of the best drummers of the rock generation, along with a number of extremely talented ensemble members. I don't often cry at documentaries but the BBC one certainly had me in tears.

This DVD is a testament to the jazz legacy of BT, and the obsessive perfectionism of JH (it took five years to put together), and was recorded in Stuttgart in 2005. There's little about this DVD I can say beyond superb. BT and the band at their live best. Over the years I've been to live gigs and I'm grateful at last to have a record of one. I enjoyed every single track, and with the lights down low the years drifted away and I was back in the Oaks.

If you like jazz I can't recommend this DVD enough. If I could I'd have given it another star.
