Atmosphere,picture 1080 and DTS are on top level for live concerts.
At the moment there's only few blu ray releases with let's say "Modern Jazz" artists
and most probably this one is the best.
From a visual point of view the various camera angles are well chosen and enhance the experience rather than detracting from it which is often the case. Likewise there are no silly amateur style transitions which unfortunately hampered PMG's 'Imaginary Day Live' DVD release. I notice that a previous reviewer describes 'The Way Up' as one of Metheny's 'worst ever compositions', this is a matter of personal taste of course but it does leave me wondering why he purchased this DVD in the first place..? I have to admit that when I bought the CD it took me several attempts to really appreciate it fully but it's the type of music that the more you listen to it, the more you get out of it and it's now become one of my favourite PMG albums. Yes it would have been nice to have some of his greatest hits on there, however this in no way detracts from the DVD's merit. If you like PMG, buy it - it's as simple as that.
Picture quality: 5/5. Very good. It's almost like having the musicians in the room with you.
Sound quality: I can't comment on this, as I haven't connected it to my 5.1 system yet. Played through my Sony TV, the sound is at least OK!
Content: 3/5. This is where this disc disappoints. It's great to see Metheny on Blu-Ray, but such a shame that the recording should be of one of his worst-ever compositions. Metheny will be remembered as one of the greatest composers of the last quarter of the 20th century, so posterity deserves a good record of concert performances of his greatest pieces.
Those of us who saw the PMG perform 'The Way Up' will recall that after completing the marathon piece, the band then played many of their greatest hits -- almost as if it were a farewell tour. It is a great pity that this disc does not record a complete gig -- just the first half.
Most of the close-up shots are well chosen. I just didn't need to see the podgy, half-committed Steve Rodby reading the music that the rest of the band had bothered to memorise. Bring back Richard Bona, a far better bassist!
If ever the PMG go on tour again, you can bet that 'The Way Up' will be reduced to a 10-minute summary (if that). It is a terrible epitaph for a fantastic group.
