5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. Bruce on 12 Aug 2007
Format: DVD
At this time[1967] western music was severely restricted in the east and very little jazz could be heard either on L.P /concerts/radio etc.[ I used to smuggle jazz tapes into East Germany / Poland etc.] so to be present at this concert by such a powerhouse big band must have felt like a bobardment.To me the essential element of the music is the Francy Boland arrangements. These are played by a U.S/U.K/European collection of top flight modern jazz muscians but the main difference to other big bands of the era is the presence of the two drummers, Kenny Clarke of course and England's Kenny Clare.These two, far from being overpowering, give the band a terrific lift. The soloing is a bit of a mixture of exellent and 'also-ran', Johnny Griffin in particular not being at his usual exuberant best. The sound quality is good but the black and white film quality, as can be expected from this period, suffers from being transferred from video tape but does not detract from this d.v.d being a recommended buy. Also two members as listed in the personnel ,Tony Coe and Dusko Goykovich are missing.

Recommended by Jazz Journal it has proved to be a very good reminder of how the band sounded and looked when I saw them many years ago.and is warmly recommended to all big band jazz lovers.
