Some music DVDs to watch

Recently I have a passel of music DVDs on hand and a couple in the mail:

  • Robben Ford in Concert - Ohne Filter: Revisited was a birthday present from my little sister. It's from a music program on German TV, recorded in 1997, and it's an excellent performance, Robben is really on in this one. There's a keyboardist on this one, which give him a nice harmonic cushion to work over (he usually plays in a trio setting these days). I'm really looking forward to seeing him next week at the Independent with a Hammond B-3 player on hand...
  • Wayne Shorter Live at Montreux was a present from my older brother... have not yet had a chance to see it but am anticipating it -Wayne is one of my gods... From the description: "musician Wayne Shorter performs live at the 1996 Montreux Jazz Festival with the Wayne Shorter Quintet. In addition to playing tracks from his Grammy Award-winning High Life album, this release also features bonus footage from past appearances at Montreux, when he was joined onstage by the great Herbie Hancock."
  • Robben Ford: The Art of Blues Rhythm and The Art of Blues Solos are two instructional videos...
  • Jeff Beck Performing This Week at Ronnie Scott's is on its way in the mail...
