3.0 out of 5 stars Not what it could have been, August 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This all-star band covers the catalog of soul icon Curtis Mayfield, but unfortunately doesn't achieve the full potential of the material. My personal gripes are choice of players - trumpet player Wallace Roney with is soul-less and very technical playing doesn't do justice to the material, I would have preferred a more soulful player, and the once highly revered saxophonist Ernie Watts is simply past his prime, another player would have yielded better results. The rest of the band is top-notch, especially guitarist Phil Upchurch delivers lots of sparkling solos. To sum it up: The CD has its moments, but ultimately leaves me cold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, December 28, 2011
After ten years of working as one of Scotlands foremost landscape photographers, Bruce Percy released his first book. It is a beauty, the images are first-rate and the printing quality of the book is outstanding. The book is still available at the website of Bruce Percy at [...]. Don't miss it as long as it remains available, this one is destined to become a collector's item!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, May 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This e-book is an insult, I should be given away for free, or - even better - not exist at all! It is a short plug for mammography (26 pages), totally uncritical, in parts misleading or simply wrong. For instance it is stated that women in their 40ies already should receive mammograms, which is not in line with the data (a small benefit starts to emerge from the age of 50 onwards, but not before). On p. 19, it is stated that women with dense breasts should get a mammogram, which is ill advice, because especially this group is better served with an ultrasound of the breast because mammography usually fails to detect tumors in dense breasts. So this is a shameless piece of advertisment from the radiology department and not a useful guideline for the woman seeking advice. Stay away from this publication!

2.0 out of 5 stars Falls short, December 10, 2010
I bought this book at the airport to shorten the waiting time, its premise sounded quite interesting - to learn from the mistakes of others, so you can prevent them in your own life. Unfortunately, this book falls short on this goal, because it never really rises above describing the rise and fall of those CEOs and entrepreneurs, lacking in-depth explanations why things really capsized, and when they attempt to do so, they only deliver cliches and prejudices. I assume this is due to the fact that the authors relied on newspaper and internet rescources only. I read the first half of the book and won't waste more time on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worldclass project which is thoroughly enjoyable, October 22, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lee Ritenour - Overtime (DVD)
I have been following the career of Lee Ritenour for many years and this project somehow serves as overview of his career with lots of old cohorts performing with him (like Ernie Watts, Dave Grusin and Anthony Jackson) to recreate the spirit of the original. Added are some great players of the current generation like Eric Marienthal, Chris Botti and - one of the discoveries of recent times - songstress Kenya Hathaway being a standout member of the group. The whole project is carefully conceived and flawlessly executed which is no surprise taken the amount of talent and experience amassed! This is an absolutely world-class, top-notch group of players and the result is accordingly. The sound mix is great (absolutely meeting audiophile standards), the only gripe I have is the picture quality. Despite being filmed in High Definition the DVD just comes in plain 4:3 format with black bars on top and bottom of the picture which sacrifices a lot of resolution when expanded to a large screen. Why didn't they give us an anamorphic picture? This would have been so much nicer on my 60' set. For this reason I gave the DVD only 4 stars. And the interviews in between are debatable, I agree that they would have been better tucked away in the extras section of the disc. Nevertheless, this is a superlative music DVD which is heartily recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars This band GROOOOVES!, October 15, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Taped at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1977 this concert video shows its age in picture quality but delivers some good audio quality. This minor quibble aside lets get to the core of the DVD - the concert itself. AWB were on top of their game at 1977 and this concert footage shows a tight, funky and constantly grooving band bringing the crowd to their feet and dancing. Anchored by the heavy funk drumming by Steve Ferrone supported by percussionist Sammy Figueroa the energy keeps on flowing. The show is boldly opened with the classic hit "Pick Up The Pieces" and delivers hit after hit like "Cut The Cake", "Person To Person", "Work To Do" - wish I was there myself! I am glad that such great concerts become available now and look forward to more great music videos from the Montreux Jazz Festival series. Don't miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real soul from the bottom of Howard's heart!, September 17, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Taped in front of a small studio audience in LA and backed by a competent band (with Garry Goin on guitar who has released a smooth jazz CD) Howard Hewett delivers a great show. His singing is out of this world, soulful and inspired, offering lots of romantic love songs and meaningful lyrics. The closing inspirational song "Say Amen" gave me goosebumps! The widescreen video is edited nicely giving the music and performance ample room to breathe and offers a good 5.1 mix. A nice touch is the bonus material featuring an acoustic studio session with George Duke and Stanley Clarke and a friendly chat with old fellow James Ingram. This DVD is a great package and very recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars George goes back to his roots, November 3, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Face the Music (Audio CD)
I have followed the career of George Duke over the years and have not always been pleased with his albums - but this one is the bomb! George goes back to his roots with a tight band and some "live" playing, keyboards, horns etc. He doesn't shy away from tracks which lasts over 10 minutes with lots of adventurous soloing (Ten Mile Jog). Like back in the days when the term "radio friendly" was unknown. Groovy baby!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware - 0% funk!, August 6, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 100% Pure Funk (Audio CD)
The CD's title "100% pure funk" is completely misleading - this album doesn't contain a single funk track. Instead we get a bunch of swinging organ tracks with sax and guitar from the 60ies. The CD is nice if you are into this type of jazz but in case you are after the funk stuff from Jimmy McGriff ("Outside Looking In", "Tailgunner" etc.) then this album is definitely NOT for you.
