Carlos Santana , who has infused his music with the blues for the past four decades ( remember , his band was originally called the Santana Blues Band ), pulls one off here . He brings Buddy Guy ,( who it is said was doing Hendrix before Hendrix ..... and was told by the Chess Bros. that sound would never make it ) Gatemouth Brown ( a true American musical giant) and Bobby Parker ( an incredible yet seemingly unknown guitarist , except among blues fanatics ) together in one venue for an unbelievable night of blues guitar fireworks . Well shot , great sound , and an incredible guest vocal along the way by Barbara Morrison make this set the steal of the year .

Wow, I was completely blown away by the first DVD featuring a performance by Bobby Parker. Bobby is a journeyman blues guitarist dating way back to the late 50's / early 60's, travelling all over performing shows to whoever appreciated the blues. With only a hand full of hits and albums released during his career, Bobby lights it up on this DVD like a man whose still plays with the energy of when he was just starting out. Man, is his show red hot, and I gotta tell you it's nice that Santana comes out and jams with him for the last few songs, but even Santana stops playing just to hear his childhood hero keep playing. Amazing set.

The other 2 DVD's are great, especially Gatemoth Brown. The man is old, but he his playing is fluid, simplistic, and bone cutting. While I wished he played more guitar than fiddle (which he is a killer fiddler), he lets his sax man carry on through much of his set. The jam with Santana at the end is a highlight as Buddy Guy even comes out to try Santana's guitar.

Lastly is Buddy Guy. Buddy Guy is a legend, and the most well known of the 3 blues masters appearing this night. He's a household name. He starts out acoustically for 3 songs which are unbelievable. Unfortunately, since Buddy Guy is well known, watching and listening to Buddy Guy I feel like he is the Jimmy Buffet of the blues. I mean that when he's on full on band mode, it's a party and everyone is invited to come on up and jam. And that's exactly what happens at the end of the show (minus Gatemouth). Santana, Buddy, Bobby Parker, Nile Rodgers, and Barbara Morrison just have a fun, flat out 30 minute jam at the end. While it's not as hot as it had the potential to be, it's not a dud by any means, in fact, once Buddy Guy leaves the stage, Bobby Parker takes over, and just lights it up like he did earlier.

If anyone appreciates deep Southern American blues, get this. For fans of Santana this is a no brainer to pick up.

Hands down one of my favorite blues concerts of all time. I love Buddy Guy and Clarence Gatemouth Brown. Bobby Parker does a good job although his style of blues seems a little too rigid for me. Santana put together a great show but I've gotta say that i didn't expect what i ended up watching. I assumed Buddy guy would steal the show seeing as how he is the biggest name out of all three but the saxaphone player for Clarence Brown is insanely talented. He is by far the best part of this concert series. If you are a fan of slow elegant blues then you need to get this DVD set. The video is crystal clear and the camera angles are very well positioned so as to not obstruct the view of the musicians which is great for people like me because i love to watch the musicians play. I'm not sure if they even have this on Blu Ray but i have the DVD and the audio is superb. The highs aren't shrill and the lows are warm and full. Overall, this is a great set for any lover of live music.

Let me begin by saying that I was extremely excited and intrigued to see this CD collaboration from 2004. I bought it and watched it and thought someone should give this performance an honest review. First of all Santana plays as backing band member on many songs and simply softly plays rythms with the other band members. He has a few inspired solos which are wonderful and interesting but they seem to be few and far between.
The Old Heads are all accomplished and succesful leaders in their own right but I believe this CD to not be representative of their legendary status. Gatemouth Brown starts out first and plays a percussive quickly picked style that is difficult for Santana to jam with. The songs are his personal blues testimony but to me they all sound very much alike. There is even a point at the end of his set where he has his guitar set up wrong and is playing in the wrong key for like half the song before the bass player straightens him out. Bobby Parker is next and to me is the highlght of the CD. His style is more complimentary to Santanas and he has an all out approach to soloing which is fun to watch. Their set is the most entertaining of the three to me. However, Parker has the extremely naive habit of adjusting his tuning while he's playing and thinking its OK (its not-nuffsaid) and that discredits his professionalism in my opinion.
Lastly is Buddy Guy and he is a respected player with whom I am most familiar. I have heard some of his performances in the past and was struck by how soulful and beautiful he played. That is not the case here. He plays so softly in a clean tone that it is difficult to even hear him at all. Then when he hits his effects pedal its so loud that its just plain wrong.
