5.0 out of 5 stars A different look at Jazz October 28, 2013
By Corey C

My boyfriend is a HUGE Jazz fan. He's very into the ever-changing / mixing of Jazz and hip/hop, R&B, etc. This Blu-ray is a great mix of all of that. If you have any jazz fans in your life who are open to experiencing more than just classic jazz / jazz standards, this is a great gift for them! Quality and sound is great.

This dvd is excellent, and well worth watching. A word of caution - you MUST be a jazz fan to even begin to appreciate the music. Definitely one of the best music dvd's I've watched n a while.

Stand out performances from Ambrose Akinmusire, Jason Lindner, and Jaleel Shaw.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly Mixed in Quality. August 25, 2011
By Bruce
As a big Jazz fan, when I came across this it seemed very appealing. Blu Ray with Dolby 5.1 surround sound, 8 hours of live music from New York Jazz clubs - what could be better?

However, when I got the set, I felt it was strange that I had not heard of many of the performers and I mentioned it on online forums to Jazz players in the US - they were similarly nonplussed at the choice of artists.

It seems a French crew were given the chance to go and film who they wanted over the month of November 2008 and they seem to have chosen acts that mostly cross over with hip hop or electronics and the actual Jazz content is quite minimal across the 8 hours. The acts are so varied though, that I can't imagine many people liking them all. So I shall go through them one by one, in order.

VAL INC etc.
This is very experimental, noise, electronics which dominate with a bit of free blowing and some guitar - in my view not really Jazz and has nothing to do with the Jazz tradition - fast forward very useful thank you!

Now this is a bit more ike Jazz, but I found the leader/trumpeter to be self indulgent and not as good as many other trumpeters in the same vein, It was listenable, but not worthy of a showcase like this.

JASON LINDNER BIG BAND
I actually liked this a lot although I hated the rapping - the big band elements were great! Again the leader was over-indulgent and it was all a bit "bohemian" Jazz cliche - but the music was worth it - a find!

CHRIS DAVE & FRIENDS
I did recognise Robert Glasper who is very good at this kind of thing - liked the Herbie Hancock references.
