This 1998 show at what looks like the Paul Masson winery in California captures that time perfectly. As I sit in front of my home theater I have my 4-week old daughter in my arms and she is mesmermized by the sound...her first musical experience. I'm biased and not going to write a long review except to say this is a 5-star DVD to me...because it appears my little girl is as astonished by Pat and his band as I was 12 years ago. Thanks guys...
*This appears to be re-release of the 2001 out-of-print DVD. Yes the video can be grainy in some darkly lit tunes but given the venue in 1998 it's par for the course. Some reviews on the original DVD didn't like the occasional split-screen matting. I never noticed it until I read the reviews.
I wish Amazon had a 3 criteria rating that would make for a quicker, more accurate and fair rating of Cd's, DVD's and Blu-ray's.
2. Quality of Audio
3. Quality of Video (for DVD's and Blu-ray's)
Artists that wish to have there performances recorded and recognized should be held to a standard. Poor Audio or Video, no matter how good the performance, is still a bad product. Those who would still purchase sub-standard Audio or Video quality recordings and rank that product highly just because of performance are not doing the industry or the band justice. Demand better and we will get it, settle for less and that's what you'll get.
Unfortunately the video of this concert film is a bit off-putting. First of all the aspect ratio is mostly the squarish 1.33:1. I say mostly because there are a number of scenes where the screen is stretched wider and has double and sometimes 4 images. There is one sequence where Metheny is highlighted in a tight vertical frame. All that trickery is forgivable but the poor lighting causing scenes of white floaters against the black backdrop and is a bit fuzzy even on closeups. Even my Oppo had a hard time presenting this DVD. The sound fortunately is excellent given the limited lossy options. The DTS 5.1 surround option is the best bet although Dolby Digital 5.1 and Pro Logic stereo is available.

Pat methany and his group always put out great stuff. Have been listening to him since he started. Live concerts are always the best in person or recorded.Published on January 28, 2013 by greg mac donald
