Disc one starts out with the Dave Weckl band. Weckl has always been a great drummer and ,unlike many other drummers, he can write great compostions as well. The set that his band goes through is similar to the 'VERY LIVE' 2 disc set. The cameras focus on Weckl as he shows his ability to go from Jazz/Latin Jazz/funk in a great collection of Weckl Tunes. The man can do it all. He has been called a 'Gadd Clone' but he has developed his own style that is amazing. An in demand drummer at the height of his powers.
Horacio 'El Negro' Hernandez joins John Patitucci and Oriente Lopez for a Latin Jazz set. Lopez wrote all of the music and it is great latin jazz which isn't typical of the genre. If there is a better Latin Jazz drummer than Haracio out there I'd love to hear him. John Patitucci is amazing as always. He somehow manages to play over changes while he maintains the link between bass and drums. He is one of the greatest complete bassists around. (Other than Stanley Clarke I can't think of a bassist that is a virtuoso on both upright and electric) Great Latin jazz from a trio that I'd love to catch live. Horacio defies convention and is a must for anyone to hear. What he does with his left foot is better than what most drummers do with all of their appendages. He outdoes his playing on the Montreal Drumfest DVD. A feat that I thought was impossible.
Victor Wooten does his thing next.Read more ›
incredible lineup. I have seen Dave Weckl perform a lot and I think this is his best recorded performance. Steve Smith and Victor Wooten are worth the price of this dvd by themselves. Horacio shows why he has raised the bar for latin drumset playing. And then there is Steve Gadd-no one plays the drums like he does and the camera work and sound make it like you are sitting in the audience. There are great interviews with
all of the performers and some really cool behind the scene footage. And for bass players John Patitucci and Felix Pastorius are amazing. At over 5 hours, sit back and enjoy the show.
so you can see 3 of the most important drummers and 2 of the most important bassists, on 1 DVD, excellent sound quality, what else should i say? GET IT!!
Not only is it entertaining and inspiring to watch, but it is also educational with the behind the scenes footage.might have the best Dave Weckl performance I've ever seen. well done Hudson Music.

The sound and picture quality is excellent, and so are the performances. I only gave it four stars for two reasons. First, there is not enough music to justify the price. Read morePublished on November 8, 2003 by Mark Wellman
