What can say about one of the great sax players of all time !
Disc 1 is more progressive and fast paced!
Disc 2 is more melodic which I prefer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clapton Marsalis Plays The Blues @ The Rose Room..., September 21, 2011

Clapton Marsalis plays The blues @ The Rose Room Lincoln Center

I was @ The orginal show in April and loved it then and I love it now on DVD
But I must say that based some of the reviews on Amazon....
I say this....

CLAPTON FANS PLEASE GROW UP....
Eric has grown up how bout you...

This is two different artists of different training melding into one and Clapton is going for another challenge and nails it with great interpretion and ripping solos and thank GOD for Carlos suggestioning Layla " This an absolute classic and will be for years to come...

Marsalis, Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and nine-time Grammy® Award winner, writes about his collaboration with Clapton, a 19-time Grammy recipient, in the album's liner notes: "...we wanted these concerts to sound like people playing music they know and love, not like a project."

To help them achieve that level of devotion, Marsalis and Clapton were joined on stage by Dan Nimmer (piano), Carlos Henriquez (bass), Ali Jackson (drums), Marcus Printup (trumpet), Victor Goines (clarinet), Chris Crenshaw (trombone, vocals), Don Vappie (banjo) and Clapton's longtime keyboardist/sideman Chris Stainton. Marsalis says the group combined the sound of an early blues jump-band with the sound of New Orleans jazz to accommodate the integration of guitar/trumpet lead, a combination that gave the musicians the latitude to play different grooves, from the Delta to the Caribbean and beyond.

The band nimbly navigated a diverse set list that touched on different styles, from the four-on-the-floor swing of Louis Armstrong's "Ice Cream" and the southern slow-drag of W.C. Handy's "Joe Turner's Blues" to the traveling blues of "Joliet Bound" and the boogie-woogie jump of "Kidman Blues." After opening the shows with his solo set, Mahal returned to join the band on "Corrine, Corrina" and the New Orleans funeral standard "Just A Closer Walk With Thee."

The one song not selected by Clapton for the show was his own "Layla," which was requested by bassist Henriquez and arranged as a Crescent City dirge to tremendous results. On his review of the performance, David Fricke of Rolling Stone wrote: "In the [song's] instrumental break, Clapton hit a series of stabbing licks lightly crusted with distortion, followed by Marsalis' slow parade of clean hurting peals - a moving dialogue in lovesickness and blues routes."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rat Pack Ultimate Collectors Edition (Ocean's 11 / Robin and the 7 Hoods / 4 for Texas / Sergeants 3), January 5, 2011
The Rat Pack Ultimate Collectors Edition (Ocean's 11 / Robin and the 7 Hoods / 4 for Texas / Sergeants 3)

This is a wonderful set 4 dvd's appear to be restored and remastered by the picture quality and at the price 12 or 13 dollars is absolute steal, it comes with all kind of goodies which other reviewers have specified...The thing that I don't understand is with all the work that Warner brothers has put into package, they don't specify whether there has been any restoration to the movie's which I believe is a major selling point to anybody that would be collecting this type of product...

For me this movie ranks up there of one of the best comedies of all time, taking place in the glorious 50's a Zombie movie with a fantastic story line which I won't get into because some may reviewers have done such a good job ...The quality of the movie shooting is first rate ,great camera angles and glorious colors The cars of the fifties are so beautiful they even have a classic Jaguar, also the most realistic gun shots I have ever heard in the movies,acting is great If you love comedy and Zombies you must see this movie. One of the best in years....

The Parent Trap (1998)

I call this movie the ultimate feelgood movie with movie's like "Coming to America" and "Beetlejuice"...Everbody is great and Lindsey Lohan is terrific and I hope she gets her act together...And sad to see one of my favorite actress's Natasha Richardson who died seeing her still puts a lump in my throat...
This is a movie for all ages...
