This was a GREAT purchase. The tunes are wonderful, the band is swingin' and Chet is in fine form. The performance of MY FUNNY VALENTINE is the absolute best version I have EVER heard. Each track is a delight but the DVD is worth the money just to hear that rendition of "...VALENTINE".. Amazing. It gave me chills. I can't get enough.

I love Jazz. I consider the live format to be best because improvisation is all about being spontaneous thus is the art. Chet Baker does not dissappoint in this DVD. If you know one thing about Baker, is that he lived a hard and sad life that ended tragically. When observing this concert, particularly during the close-up views, his life hardships are very evident in his face. However, once he is on his horn, you understand instantly why he is considered one of the greats from the Cool Jazz era which is a very limited group that includes Miles Davis; Gil Evans; Dave Brubeck; John Coltrane.

The music is nothing short of expert classical cool jazz and the improvisation from each of the musicians in the set demonstrate that all are at the very top of their game during this concert. I've always considered Baker's singing something of a curiosity because there is no doubt that his trumpet playing is distinct and artistic, however, I cannot determine whether he is a good singer but the music doesn't work nearly as well without his vocals. This is what makes the concert fabulously strange. When he is playing trumpet you want more, and when he is singing, you anxiously wait and anticipate the trumpet solo which as a combination makes a great build-up and performance format.

The only only negative to this DVD is the recording quality which is below par to say the least, but acceptable. Considering the age of the recording date I guess this is the best that could be done with the technology.

This is adult music and a performance that only a mature audiance can appreciate. There are no dancers, gimmicks, lights or synthesizer enhancements.

TERRIBLE video eve though the concert was in 1987 - looks like someone tried to record the concert w/ a cheap cell phone. Audio is okay. The tracks are the same as the CD version of this concert. Even with the bad video, it's interesting to watch C.B. in action (I guess bad video is better than no video). Really only for true C.B. fans (like me), If you're not a big fan, save your $!
