    Yup. What a great concert. Matt Garrison's playing is excellent.

    I saw herbie w/ headhunters in mid seventies w/ paul jackson on bass. Just last year, Mike clark's prescription renewel toured (fred wesley, larry goldings, bill summers) and paul jackson was unbelievable! I picked up this herbie dvd over the weekend and it is awesome. Matt Garrison is dynamite! He seems to use a combination of 3 finger plucking along with his thumb to achieve some super fast right hand speed! Nice upright work also. Overall a great dvd--great sound, nice production, good materiel spanning much of herbies's electronic stuff.

    I was hoping to get this for Christmas, but it seems to only be available in the US at the moment. :(

    I bought myself a DVD player for Xmas...I'm definitely open for this & other suggestions!

    I can recommend the Joni/Jaco DVD(Shadows & Light)...coming from, that's no-brainer, right?
    The Woodstock Jazz Festival(from the '70s) is also happenin'.
    Miroslav Vitous takes about the baddest bowed bass solo I have ever heard...Anthony Braxton goes totally off on his "Impressions" solo. Wild s***!

    I did buy the Isle Of Wight DVD...I can NOT recommend this. Too many close-up cropped shots of the vocalists. Example: I wanted to see Free & Andy Fraser doing "All Right Now"...it's about 3:00 minutes of Paul Rodgers' face.

    There is a glimpse of Miles' electric '70s band, though(maybe 3:00 minutes worth)...one can see Dave Holland, Chick, Keith Jarrett, & DeJohnette.
    They're playing one of those thick-heavy-Rock-Funk vamps...
    I have no idea what those hippies thought of this aggregation!

    Oh yeah, there is a quick shot of a young nude hottie being escorted off(right before the 1st Hendrix tune).

    I'd have to agree with this (and I was the one that recommended this DVD on TalkBass!). The best thing about it is the Emerson, Lake and Palmer footage.

    Am I right in thinking that Shadows and Light is a Japanese DVD?

    Of interest to jazz fans might be 'The Miles Davis Story'. This documentary was shown on British TV two years ago and is now on DVD (not available in the UK though! :( ). Some decent clips of the 2nd great quintet, the "lost quintet" and a few glimpses of the Jarrett/Bartz/Henderson and '73-'75 bands.

    Dang! I asked for that for Christmas but Santa forgot to bring it. He did leave the book "So What," a new biography of Davis that claims to sort out rumor from fact. It is EXHAUSTIVELY researched. I have glanced through it, but fear it doesn't spend enough time discussing the music, but instead concentrates on relationships, rivalries and Davis' idiosyncracies. It will take a long time to read. I really wish I could have seen the DVD first, to give me some perspective.
  8. with all the dvd's at audiophile imports i could go broke. i wish i could find some old headhunters footage. ive managed to get a hold of boots of a lot of the 70's stuff but i havent found anyone with 70's herbie.

    Have you heard the double live japanese cd "Flood" from the mid 70's? any good?

    Flood is happenin'!

    Dave B-
    The Jaco/Joni DVD is KOREAN...meaning it's Region 0(?) meaning it should play on anything(?).
    All I know is it works on my US-bought Sony DVD player & my US-bought Gateway compooter.

    I thought yer boy Bruce L. already had this?

    Hey JO-
    Do you already have Ashely Kahn's The Making Of Kind Of Blue?
    Another decent Jazz writer, Eric Niesensen, has a book out on the same subject, too(I haven't read it; I have read his Miles bio & a Coltrane "bio". Both are good).
    Personally, I like reading about the "idiosyncracies".

    BTW, Sanata did bring me Kahn's newest book, A Love Supreme: The Story Of John Coltrane's Signature Album.
    So far, it looks like a winner!
  12. what jim says. it was worth the 30 bucks i had to spend to get the cd.i went on an audiophile imports binge a couple years ago and bought a ton of stuff and it looks like i might have to do the same thing sometime soon!

    Just checked-
    Flood can be had from Dusty Grooves for $20.
    ...another from that era, Direct Step ain't too bad, either.

    One of my favourite music-buying sites...period! ;)
