The viewer is treated to electric and acoustic sets, being the electric ones my favorites. The song that is worth the price of the whole DVD alone, in my humble opinion is 'Put it where you want it'. Amazing, energetic solos by Sanborn, Clapton and Sample.
About the DVD itself. Audio transfer is flawless, with DTS and Dobly tracks, you get a crisp, kind of live quality to the show.
The video is letterbox format, great for concerts, but colors seem to be a little washed off, my bootleg copy from japanese Tv seems to have more quality to it. No extras on this dvd :( and only a very straightforward menu animation.
For it's price, this is one of the best concerts out there, especially if you are a Clapton fan, but Sanborn and Miller also deliver the goods like no other. Recommended
The set list is a nice mix of jazz and blues, containing both outright jams as well as a few more mellow tunes. Realize these guys are not fantastic showmen, but they are incredible musicians so buy it for that reason. I've always been a Sanborn and Joe Sample fan and neither disappoint, delivering soulful performances. Steve Gadd is his ususal flawless self and Marcus Miller on bass is superb. Although Clapton is very good, his sound and some of his solos don't seem to fit with some of the songs. A little too much of a rock sound. At times I wish he had opted for the Gibson guitar (like he did on One more car, One more rider) to get that smoother, cleaner jazz sound on some of the tunes. All in all though, the musicianship is outstanding as you would expect from these guys.
As I said the sound quality is very good. It would be excellent had they not botched up what could be the best song on the disc. It's one of two times Clapton uses an acoustic and you can barely hear anything he plays...very disappointing. However, Joe Sample has an excellent solo here. Also, on the closing song (which is great) the mike is messed up and his voice fades in and out.
The video quality (along with the couple of audio issues above) is the main reason I don't give this 5 stars. If you are not watching this on a large screen HDTV, then don't bother reading any further as the issues are a moot point for you. The camera work is excellent in terms of capturing the concert and it looks great on a 32 inch CRT. The downer is it was shot in 4:3 and doesn't view near as well on a 52 inch HDTV.Read more ›
