This is a nice DVD, while one that was not up to snuff in my honest opinion. I am an old jazz man, and these little short snippets of performances were not all that good. I want to hear the performer get into the music. . .listening to a couple of notes - short segments of a song - and then rolling onto someone else was not that interesting and I found it quite annoying and unenjoyable. While I liked all the artists listed, not one of them got the chance to stretch out and really give me something worth listening too or watching. Also while the show is an old one (1975) I was really disappointed in the camera positions, editing (takes), etc. I wasn't that taken with the performances, but at least it's in my collection.

There's no chance of mistaking this highlights DVD for an HD disc, yet the viewer best not divert attention from the screen lest he miss important musical action not unmixed with sadness. Paul Desmond looks and sounds vibrant on "Emily" not more than a year before his passing, and Bill Evans appears overweight (even allowing for the artificially widened image on my screen) five years prior to playing his last note in the same geographical region.

Although the narrative is frequently gratuitous, the musical action just as often compensates. A surprisingly youthful and spry Clark Terry immediately greets the viewer with a circular-breathing demonstration on an aria to a Toshiko Akiyoshi original, a reminder of her claim to the number one spot among remaining big bands (which even today has been threatened by neither the ethereal offerings of Maria Schneider, at the one extreme, or the heavy-footed commercial approach of Gordon Goodwin's "Big Phat Band" at the other).

If Bill Evans looks a tad overweight, Etta James on this occasion has more than a small degree of visual aid to offer during her rendition of "Shake Your Booty." Nothing is lost by the producers' decision to cut short the performances of Etta and Bobby Blue Bland.

Dizzy Gillespie is surrounded by numerous percussion players (along with vibes star Cal Tjader), but comparatively little is heard from his horn (though he appears fully engaged in trying to get a response out of the crowd).

This video is in British PAL video format. Don't buy this unless you live in the UK. I bought this 3 times from Movie Mars and another 2 times straight from Amazon with it being listed by them as NTSC, but still arrived being a PAL format. There IS now a newer 2007 version tho that IS in American NTSC which has a different picture on the front cover, plus the back cover is shown with an American flag and NTSC,etc. On content my only dissapointment was that I wasn't familiar with the Blood Sweat & Tears tunes they did. Video could've been longer to show more of the artists, but I'll keep it anyway just the same.
