Top Customer Reviews

By S J Buck TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 7 Oct. 2006
Format: DVD
A chance to see this 1975 JATP concert should not be turned down.

The numbers played are:

For You

Autumn Leaves

Sunday

If I Had You

I Never You

The line-up of the band is:

Bobby Durham - Drums

Keeter Betts - Bass

Joe Pass - Guitar

Tommy Flanagan - Piano

Clark Terry - Trumpet/Flugelhorn

Roy Eldridge - Trumpet

Benny Carter - Alto Sax

Zoot Sims - Tenor Sax

With a line-up like that you know its going to be good - and it is.

All the musicians are on top-form: Clark Terry is immaculate and inventive, Roy Eldridge fiery and competitive, quite simply its a chance to see some of the all-time Jazz greats in colour, on film, with decent sound. Buy now you won't regret it!

My reason for the "missing star" is due to the constant racket provided by the drummer -Bobby Durham - behind the soloists, particularly during the up-tempo numbers and which he also manages to speed up. We have on this d.v.d a line-up of some of the finest musicians of the era but accompanied by drummer who was either influenced by or was the role model for 'Animal" in the Muppets band. It is ,however, interesting to see the reaction of the musicians and in particular Zoot Sims when faced with the explosions emanating from the percussion department. However despite the foregoing comments this d.v.d.is worth every penny of the purchase price.

This MAGNIFICENT recreation of JATP spirit has the players in a very good form
(including Roy Eldridge, who could sometimes be less than impressive in the 1970s). If you've ever wandered what's mainstream jazz - here it is! With be-boppish slippery phrases freely mixed
with typical swing forms and procedures, with plenty of spirit drive and wit, I can hardly choose my favorite participant in this jamboree. At times it's the elegance of Benny Carter's alto that takes me completely, at times Clark Terry's unique warmth on his horns, at times complex but swinging phrases from Joe Pass' guitar, but there's also Tommy Flanagan's intelligent piano,
fearless Roy Eldridge who attacks every solo as his life would depend on it....

Weeeell, I guess you can guess my recommendation for this DVD... The picture doesn't seem digitally enhanced, but it's in colour and the sound is fairly good, while the music is MAGNIFICENT. Am I repeating myself?

The late Bobby 'Thug' Durham was a fine drummer but on this evening in Montreux an unexplained transformation overcame him. Reviewer R.Bruce made an astute connection between Durham and the legendary percussion Maestro of the Muppets but Animal is in fact the very embodiment of tact,restaraint,sensitivity and acute empahty in comparison to this bizarre performance.The concert is a tribute to the stature of the musicians who shared the stage and created such fine music despite being continually exposed to the overbearing stream of noise surging forth from 'Thug'. Despite this,there is some great music to be heard.
