Editorial Reviews

Internationally renowned guitarist/composer/recording artist Mimi Fox has been named a winner in 6 consecutive Downbeat Magazine international critic's polls and has been recognized by writers and colleagues alike as one of the most eloquent guitarists on today's scene. In one of many feature stories, Guitar Player Magazine hailed Mimi as "a prodigious talent who has not only mastered the traditional forms but has managed to reinvigorate them."
Mimi has performed/recorded with some of the music world's most commanding players, including fellow guitarists Charlie Byrd, Stanley Jordan, Charlie Hunter, and Mundell Lowe, Grammy-nominated saxophonists Branford Marsalis, David Sanchez and Houston Person, and the late Don Lanphere, vocalists Abbey Lincoln, Diana Krall, Kevin Mahogany and Janis Siegel (Manhattan Transfer), B3 organ masters Joey DeFrancesco, Barbara Denerlein and Dr. Lonnie Smith, and powerhouse drummer Terri Lyne Carrington. She has also performed with legends Stevie Wonder and John Sebastian and with Patty Larkin's Vanguard Records-produced La Guitara project.
Mimi has released eight highly acclaimed albums as a leader, including her two most recent on Steve Vai's Favored Nations label. 2006's double CD, Perpetually Hip, received rave reviews from scores of publications including the San Francisco Chronicle, which called this project Fox's "Masterwork" and said: "The two discs stand as a definitive Fox statement. The first showcases her simmering interplay with a quartet featuring drum maestro Billy Hart, while the second captures her breathtaking solo style in an approach that is as harmonically resourceful as it is lyrically inventive."

5.0 out of 5 stars I Keep Coming Back ! April 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have all the guitar DVDs...all of them. I too have been bored to death by some really great guitar players and Mel Bay's yaaaawn productions.

Also have plenty great stuff. Scofield. Stern. Hall etc etc. Watch once or twice, love, come back in a year.

With this, I have to keep coming back. VERY very creative..... What? ? I can hear the wood in her guitar. I can hear her femininity. She tears the house down.

Great (and I mean great) support from Akira Tana and Chris Enghauser. Hats off to TrueFire for a really great production.

Edit 5/12/12 I'm still listening to this thing. The audio is amazing to me, I don't know what happened to the other reviewers DVDs. Akira keeps blowing my mind and Chris is a perfect compliment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Straight-Up Jazz Performance March 20, 2011
I first saw Mimi in a performance on B.E.T. some years ago. (I sure wish *that* show were available on dvd.) When I saw that this dvd had been released, I didn't hesitate. While I've really enjoyed her last studio outing, "Perpetually Hip", I knew from the B.E.T. show that her live presentation has a lot more energy. She does not disappoint in the least here.

Mimi opens the show with "Blues For 2" and "Stella By Starlight". Both tracks are superb, although they feel like the band's just getting warmed up. By the time they hit Mimi's own "Pack Of Lies", the show is in full swing (no pun intended). For me the highlight of the show are the back-to-back punches of "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" (an elegant Fox solo piece) followed by Charlie Parker's barn burner "Yardbird Suite". She follows that with another ballad, "My Romance", in which she plays an opening melody line using right hand harmonics. Great stuff. And finally, the band's rendition of "Caravan" is not to be missed. One of the better versions I've heard. - "Lullaby Of The Leaves" beautifully closes the set.

The complete song list is as follows: (since I get the pleasure of being first to review this!)

Blues For 2
Stella By Starlight
Pack Of Lies
Roses In January
Triste
Polka Dots and Moonbeams
Yardbird Suite
My Romance
Caravan
Lullaby Of The Leaves

This is a no-frills trio performance. Although I wouldn't call her an innovator, Fox is a tremendous player. If you're looking for a great live jazz show, look no further... a guaranteed winner. (And it's criminally cheap too. Can't figure that one.)

For those of you asking, "Yeah... It's so cheap... It must be a crappy production, right?

4.0 out of 5 stars Be careful! October 19, 2011
By jazznut
Verified Purchase
My copy of this DVD had defective audio (frequent popping sounds throughout), but what I could hear of it was excellent. Got a refund, but am reluctant to order another copy since another reviewer on this page mentions that he had no audio on his copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Guitarist September 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
This live DVD has its place in my collection
I must say I don't play it often
I regard it as "perfect elevator jazz''
It can get a bit tiring but all my musio friends lock into it whenever they visit
She is an amazing guitarist but its not one I 'can't wait to throw on every time I get home'
What ever . . . it takes a lot of music to cover all my moods and tastes

2.0 out of 5 stars no audio July 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm familiar with Mimi's wonderful playing but was disappointed in this DVD. The audio for the performances and interview would not play. There was audio in the intro part but that's it. I ordered a replacement and had the same problem. Must be a bad batch. I had to send that one back too and request a refund. First time I've experienced this with a product from Amazon.com.
