  • Live at Montreux

    Return To Forever

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 1 hr 49 min

    Return To Forever were at the forefront of jazz/rock fusion in the seventies and like their contemporaries Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra were formed by a former Miles Davis sideman, in this case the great Chick Corea. Return To Forever hit their commercial and artistic peak with a string of albums in the mid-seventies featuring the line-up of Chick Corea on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Al Di Meola on guitar and Lenny White on drums. In 2008 this classic line-up reunited for their first tour in 25 years and proved that their musicianship and the chemistry within the band were as strong as ever. This concert was filmed at Montreux in July 2008 with the bonus tracks being filmed in Clearwater, Florida later the same month.

  • A Night With Chieli Minucci and Special EFX

    Chieli Minucci

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 1 hr 10 min

    Best known as half of the world fusion group Super EFX (alongside George Jinda), crossover jazz guitarist Chieli Minucci launched his extraordinary career in 1982, and for fourteen years divided his time between touring with the EFX band and playing session gigs with such R&B artists as Chaka Khan and Roberta Flack. 1995 saw the genesis of Minucci's solo career; from '95-'97 he recorded three critically acclaimed EPs on the JVC label: Jewels, Renaissance and It's Gonna Be Good. Minucci makes a rare reunion date with the EFX band (sans Jinda), for a live, in-concert performance, in the home video issue Chieli Minucci: A Night with Chieli Minucci and Special EFX. He interprets seven fusion numbers here: "Courageous Cats," "Speak to Me," "Daybreak," "Bodybeat," "Cause We've Ended As Lovers," "Still Waiting," and "Cruise Control."

  • Bowlive: Live at the Brooklyn Bowl

    Soulive

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 2 hr 12 min

    In March of 2010, the members of Soulive hauled their instruments through the doors of a newly-opened warehouse-turned-music venue in Brooklyn that they would call home for the next two weeks. Eric Krasno, Alan Evans and Neal Evans called on a multitude of their closest friends and musical conspirators to join them over the next fortnight - creating an incredibly broad guest lineup that included some of the pre-eminent guitar virtuosos of our generation (Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes), some of the biggest names in hip-hop (Questlove, Rahzel), and some of the most inventive improvisational players in modern rock n' roll (Robert Randolph, Marco Benevento, Oteil & Kofi Burbridge). The Brooklyn Bowl quickly became the mecca for these very distinct yet like-minded musicians, where they returned night after night, donning the dress code for good times (bowling shoes) and sharing famous Blue Ribbon fried chicken. The common thread that tied together all these disparate ingredients quickly became palpable -- from the transcendental heartfelt improvisations onstage to the homey & playful atmosphere provided by the bowling alley, the Soulive residency was like nothing that had come before it because all of those diverse elements fused to ultimately bring the Soul to Brooklyn Bowl.
