For the guitar players:
Brian Setzer is simply the best, most popular guitarist on the planet in this idiom. In his element, he's comparable to Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, et al. One of a kind. You just know it's him. Using just his basic rig of Gretch guitars, tape loop echo effect and a single Fender Bassman amp, cranked to the max, he nails every single solo. Every one. Loud, clean, not a note out of place with a dynamic pick attack. His inversions and moving chord work is amazing, and very rarely repeats himself. The icing is the vibrato work, using it to great effect; it doesn't get any better than this folks.
Carl Perkins, Les Paul, and Danny Gatton all rolled into one. On '16 Chicks' and "Fishnet Stockings" he plays so hard and intense, I thought I'd never say it but...he plays better than Danny Gatton.
Finally, the Drummer. Tony Pia. His performance is a master class of drumming. Whether he's on the 'cocktail set' or the full double bass kit, he's the best musician, next to Setzer, in the band. He drives and elevates every arrangement.
Put this one on the very best audio/video system you or a friend has, turn it up, sit back and enjoy!
Very Highly Recommended.
Expecting to see just that, this show will not let you down. I have a lot of the Orchestra albums from the early days, 90's etc., and it seems he has continued to grow and gain strength as a bandleader. I really enjoyed the interplay of the guitar and the band, and loved to see the guitar in charge and how Brian had them following and anticipating his changes, solos, breaks, all of it. He's not a bad singer either.
The press conference was great to watch also. Makes me feel like saying, "Next time you're in Chicago, let's hit a few clubs and check out some music." I'm sure he would appreciate our home-grown blues music here in Chicago.
Anyways, thanks, Brian, all the orchestra, those singing/dancing chicks, and everyone who made this one possible. If you only buy one DVD of Brian Setzer and his Orchestra, this would be an excellent choice.
It is nearly a 2 hour show...filmed well, played well...the big band is terrific, Brian breaks down the show part way to go to bass drums guitar lineup ala Stray Cats for several songs so the dynamics are fun...and the hits are well spaced to really add drama to the show. The bonus 20 minute press conference is also a fun bonus feature.
