The most engaging and powerful concert ever recorded on video!
23 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This must be the best concert I have ever witnessed, a musicianship and stage performance like no other, totally unconventional, strange, engaging and extraordinarily well played and performed! The freedom of the musicians is total and they move and groove like nothing I've seen. The concert reflects the 70's, freedom, musicianship and performance like no other - some musicians did radically different stuff from what was usual at the time, especially in jazz, rock, funk and soul, but these people take it beyond any comprehension of what a concert usually should be like.

In addition, the musicians are not just anybody - amongst others there is Blackbird McKnight, the guitarist from The Headhunter's tour (Herbie Hancock's band during the 70's) and eventually Bootsy Colins on bass, a paramount figure of funk throughout the years (James Brown, The Rubber Band etc.) and many, many other profoundly interesting figures.

It should be mentioned that the recording is from 1974 (or maybe 75, not sure), hence the quality of the material is slightly out of date but in my opinion it enhances the overall impression of the performance in addition to a very good sound quality.
