Living Colour needs no introductions: Vernon Reid, Will Calhoun, Doug Wimbish & Corey Glover are top '80s New York musicians.They're one the very few groups that can are authentic sons of Jimi Hendrix. This is obvious in the intense concert these masters of groove gave at the New Morning in 2007. Living Colour's music is the most impressive when it is performed in the intimate heat of a club!

The sheer level of musicianship on display, combined with the incredible ferocity of their performance makes this one of my favorite concert DVDs of all times.
The production values are straightforward and allow you to really see the details of each musician's performance and how they interact. It seems to take them at least a half hour out of the 1:45 minute show to warm up the dour and largely undeserving crowd of white Parisians - except for that one dreadlocked brother in the front row! - but eventually a modest mosh pit develops and the band hits the turbochargers.
If there's any weak spot on this DVD (besides Reid's tendency to noodle a bit) it's the sound quality, specifically the mix. Individual instruments are readily heard but the mix seems to fluctuate with vocals sometimes buried by the guitar, the drums coming and going, the bass occasionally steamrolling over everything...but these are minor quibbles about an otherwise hugely enjoyable show.
