Dave Koz and his excellent 5 piece band perform live here in Trinidad. Dave is a superb jazz saxophonist and the rest of the band are superb jazz musicians as well- drums, keyboards (B3 is featured), bass, and two guitar players.
The venue is hard to determine, possible a large ballroom in a hotel or maybe an outside courtyard. Whichever, the atmosphere here is very relaxed and casual. Feels and looks like a fun relaxing night at your favorite local nightclub/bar on a Saturday night. The crowd here, dressed casually, is seated and thoroughly enjoying the concert. So did I.
Musically, the smooth jazz here is light and upbeat. The exact type of light saxophone jazz heard on smooth jazz radio stations. And Dave Koz is heard often on those radio stations. If you've ever listened to smooth jazz radio, the songs in this concert will sound familiar, as they did to me.
Sometimes smooth jazz radio gets boring, but fortunately, there is a lot more energy and fun here in this concert that smooth jazz radio often fails to project for some reason. This band has a lot of fun playing live, and while this style of jazz is not very complex harmonically, it has immediate toe-tapping appeal. This isn't swing or fusion or experimental jazz, go elsewhere for that.
If you don't like a lot of sax, then skip this dvd. Every song here is a Dave Koz sax feature (recorder on one). He leads the band, plays the melodies most of the time, and is the only one performing lengthy improvisations.
If you love sax, don't hesitate to get this. However, I love sax too but I also like to hear other instruments too. Unfortunately, the other superb musicians here only have the chance very briefly to solo. This is a shame because they are each very good and only get brief moments to improvise.

Dave Koz has always been synonymous whenever the words "smooth jazz" comes up. Now I understand that the genre can be boring on the radio or for those who are not used to it. I do recommend that they see a smooth jazz concert live as the vibe is totally different from listening to CD's. This DVD is one reason I wished that more smooth jazz concerts could be recorded and sold. The idea of not allowing to record concerts live is ridiculous. Why not allow the artists to make extra money and sell the recorded concerts?

Not to get too off-topic, this DVD has songs from Dave Koz's albums Off the Beaten Path and Lucky Man. While the concert may seem out of order, the music makes more than enough to enjoy the experience. This DVD is not about being in Trinidad, it's about performing to an audience that happens to live in Trinidad. Dave Koz's soulful sounds will make you feel as it you were right in the audience (great if you have surround sound speakers). He puts a lot of passion in his playing and has plenty of energy to keep the audience engaged.

There are a few music videos included in the DVD including You Make Me Smile, Wake Up Call and Don't Look Back. I wished Dave Koz did more music videos.

I do recommend this product. If you are sitting at home with a loved one, pop this DVD in and enjoy.

For being a second hand DVD, and 13 years ago produced, it's a great music performance. If you like smoothjazz you should have a copy of this.
