Customer Review

on 18 November 2012
Firstly, GREAT concert and GREAT recording. And very moderately priced to say that a dvd is inculded. Basically its a MUST HAVE !! i think any of the more recent 'previously unissued' recordings are appreciated and gratefully received by WR fans.

Its a shame the concert is only one (fairly short) set. i much prefer this to the 'Live In Tokyo' double cd (which often meanders and lacks direction).

i have just spent a couple of hours listening to this cd (have not watched the dvd at all). Personally, i find that the grooves do not sit quite as well as they could. What i mean is that in my opinion Alex Acuna playing drums is far superior to Chester Thompson (who is a great groove merchant in his own right) who to me does not add to the music in the same way that Erskine/Gavant/Acuna might. To be somewhat critical, in places the 'TIME' loses its accuracy and i would say this is due to Chester not being quite assertive enough (esp. between ' bridges').

Alphonso is an excellent player and i recently learned that he left WR because of the inconsistency with its many drummers. He really pays homage to his predecessor Miroslav Vitous with his creative use of distortion and emulation of double-bass. Very effective !!!

Zawinul and Shorter LEAD the gig (as always !!) and are faultless. A beautiful interlude into 'Boogie Woogie 3/4' which sounds almost ECM and at times reminds me of Corea/Farrell on 'Crystal Silence' (RTF - ECM) is worth the price of the cd alone !!!

21-03-2013 (RE : Paragraph 3 - Since spending a few months listening to this cd, i have come to enjoy and appreciate Chester Thompsons drumming on this album. He really does groove and is powerful in many places).
