Editorial Reviews

Deep Purple need no introduction as one of the all-time great British rock bands. Their association with Montreux goes back to the early seventies, when their attempt to record their album "Machine Head" at the Montreux Casino was thwarted when it promptly burnt down, forcing them to make the album in the rooms and corridors of the Grand Hotel instead. The story was, of course, immortalized in their classic song "Smoke On The Water" which is the climax of this 1996 concert from the Montreux festival.

This concert was also released on CD by Eagle Records on May 2nd, with different bonus tracks from the 2000 show.

Tracklisting:
1. Fireball
2. Ted The Mechanic
3. Pictures Of Home
4 Black Night
5. Woman From Tokyo
6. No One Came

8. Hey Cisco
9. Speed King
10. Smoke On The Water

Bonus Tracks From Montreux 2000:

Finally, a glimpse of what Herb Alpert sounds like in a concert setting. This was recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July of 1996, the 30th Anniversary of the Jazz Fest. Joined by keyboardist Jeff Lorber, trumpeter Alpert displays his funk-jazz side and holds his own quite well. This is not the Tijuana Brass by any means, so the TJB fans may not get into this, even though the band goes through a funky version of "Lonely Bull" and a jazz version of "Taste of Honey". One of the big highlights is sax/flute/keyboard man Gary Meek, who is a perfect foil for Alpert's trumpet. Herb even encourages Meek to engage in a few cat-and-mouse riffs. It's my guess most people have never heard Herb Alpert in this kind of setting, so be prepared to be shocked. While the majority of this set is in a funky setting, the DVD closes with a gorgeous version of "This Guy's In Love With You", done with Herb and guitarist Tony Maiden (of Rufus fame). There are some humorous moments throughout as well. A definite keeper!

Incidentally, this sounds even better with the DTS Surround sound. Great sound and picture!

I won't wax rhapsodically about Ritchie vs Steve, but instead I will just rate the dang DVD.

The musical direction is great. This compilation of tracks recorded at historic Montreux in '96 and '00 is just fantastic. The sound quality is better than most systems are capable of, so you'll probably get the best sound your equipment can give.

I own Purples Australia '99 as well as Scandinavian Nights, New Live and Rare, and the Come Hell or High Water reunion tour with Blackmore. Montreux is in the top two, and I have enjoyed it almost every night since it arrived last month. Paice, Morse, Lord, Glover and Gillan mesh perfectly [as always] and obviously have a great time playing together. They joke around occasionally, and theres a few surprizes that spontaneously erupt on stage [Sooo, thats 'funky Claude' eh? hmmm].

This DP line-up clicks extremely well together, and it shows [I can't believe I am the only one that noticed Gillan giving Blackmore the "finger" at the end of 'Paint it Black' on the High Water DVD. If you got it - watch the last second of that track .. BOING! Up goes the 'bird' at Ritchie, who should have gotten a butt kickin instead of just the finger].

If you are a purple fan, or just a music lover who enjoys those nice long live instrumental riffs of great rock & roll that highlight not only the guitarist but all facets of the bands talents, buy this disk. These guys blend better than Tequila and Lime. Theres plenty of deep-cut material on it I'd bet money you have not heard before and that in itself is reason enough.

There's no doubt that Wayne Shorter is one of the most interesting artists in jazz, always probing as a composer and an improviser. This DVD is subtitled "Live at Montreaux 1996", but the "bonus tracks", recorded at Montreaux in 1991 and 1992, are every bit as thrilling to watch and hear.

The 1996 band includes jim Beard on keyboards, David Gilmore on guitar, Alfonso Johnson on bass and Rodney Holmes at the drums. Five glittering compositions and Wayne Shorter's always surprising improvisations are once again the high point. Beard's and Gilmore's inventions support, and the rhythm section is solid, but it's Wayne Shorter that provides the energy, as the listener waits to hear what he'll say next. The man was and is a treasure.

For my money, the two bonus track bands that play two compositions each are even more interesting, in no small part because each features Wayne Shorter's longtime collaborator, Herbie Hancock. The 1991 group includes Stanley Clark at the top of his game on acoustic bass and Shorter's Weather Report cohort Omar Hakim on drums. While Omar Hakim seems a bit ill-suited for this music, Stanley Clark is wonderful here, and Herbie Hancock is superb, especially as a soloist. "Footprints" is one of Shorter's most-often performed compositions, but this version starts off almost unrecognizable, then shifts to a half-time funk feel before finally reaching it's more familiar 6/8. Shorter's final solo chorus is particularly wonderful, as is Hancock's following turn.

The 1992 band belongs, at least in part, to the great Tony Williams. He's fierce behind his familiar big yellow Gretsch kit, alternating cymbal washes with explosions of tom-toms and snare. This band includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, and he plays well.

Very positive to find JUST ONE Herb Alpert's DVD, but I think maybe could be possible to produce more Herb Alpert videos, no hope finding it for the TJB era, so those "modern" videos who I remember saw it years ago in the earlies 80's, specially for the "Fandango" promotional videos (Fandango and Route 101 for example), also some cutting edges about the "Bullish" album (Where are all of there??? Only God knows).

For the rest, Bravo Maestro, you are giving a magnificent gift to all of your loyal fans, but we deserve some more of your better times and great music.
