The technical aspect of this blu-ray is very disappointing, however. While the DTS-HD MA 5.1 & 2.0 audio is excellent, the vision looks like SD at best. I couldn't believe my eyes at first and thought I was watching a DVD not blu-ray. It's definitely the worst-looking blu-ray I've seen. It might be due to either its transfer error or original recording source issue. I strongly believe the concert was originally recorded in 1.33:1 with SD cameras even though it was shot in 2009. In addition, from time to time, video clips (post production) are inserted during each performance, which enhances the mood at times but mostly rather distracting. Camera work is not accurate and precise. Extras are great with additional performances, rehearsals, etc.
All in all, I love this "unforgettable" concert and can forgive all the technical issues. I just want more of Al Di Meola! I do hope more concerts from him and his band come out on blu-ray... with a true hi-def quality.
But I have to echo what others here have said. The video side of things here is poor quality. VHS tapes look as good. Don't know what they were thinking when they put this to blu ray. Also it's VERY basic editing and menus. And the endless artsy fartsy Moroccan mosaic theme that he seems to be trying to get across inturupts the concert with regularity gets old real quick.
Honestly if I didn't respect him as one of the greatest guitarists of all time I'd give this whole thing one star.
If you're a hard core fan it's worth having. But even as much as I like and respect him. I doubt I'll ever watch this again any time soon.
I recommend it highly.
