I have to admit that my expectations were low, when I
placed my order for this DVD. It's 1958, in B&W, and,
after all, these are jazz artists, hardly mainstream,
thus not getting the attention some popular artist would
get. When I hit play, and saw how good the video and
audio were, considering the vintage, I was overjoyed.
This performance of this group, is one of the greatest
I have had the privlege of viewing. To see this group
do Moanin' one month after recording it, well, wow!.
A 20 year old Lee Morgan was great, Benny Golson doing
his I Remeber Clifford, wow!. The whole crew, wow!.
My only regret is, that I didn't buy the boxed sets of
this series. It would have saved me time and money in
the long run. This is my fourth Jazz Icons, I have not
been disappointed. Of course, skepticism of vintage
concerts makes one cautious.
5.0 out of 5 stars Blakey's Best! Sept. 17 2007

Wow, how do I begin to tell you how great this video is? It's like actually being there at this 1958 performance! Actually, it's better than being there because the close ups shots of the band members while performing are just amazing! And the performance is a dream come true! Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, Bobby Timmons, and Jymie Merrit are all in top form, not to mention Blakey, who's manic performance nearly collaspes a cymbal stand during the incredibly hot final solo! Morgan's beautiful playing on "I Remember Clifford" is one of the best performances by anyone of the ballad. In addition, Blakey's between song comments are quite entertaining as well. If you love jazz you have got to get this DVD!

Thus far, I've purchased the Blakey, Dizzy, Ella and Monk and can without any hesitation heartily recommend them all. What a thrill to see these jazz heavyweights in their prime, with the black and white video footage and audio fidelity restored to very satisfactory levels. If you're a jazz lover, these DVDs will provides lots of smiles, joy and goosebumps.
