Live At Montreux 1986/1993

Al di Meola

Year: 1993

Runtime: 00:46:12

Al Di Meola was one of the dominant figures in jazz rock fusion in the seventies and eighties, first with Return To Forever, which also featured Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke, and later as a solo artist. His albums have dominated the US jazz charts and he has frequently earned top honors in Guitar Player magazine’s polls. From the late 1980s onwards he has moved away from jazz fusion to concentrate primarily on acoustic guitar, with an increasing Latin influence. This concert by him at Montreux Jazz Festival 1986 is a solo performance. For 45 minutes long Al Di Meola manages to keep the attention of the audience, not only with a good sense of humor but certainly also with a great variety of style and dynamics. Especially for guitarists this concert is a pleasure to watch, since it contains many close-up shots of Al Di Meola showing his amazing technique.

    Andrew Hill

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 52 min

    The Jazz Sessions spotlights Andrew Hill, a great and even groundbreaking composer and pianist. While many of his contemporaries were totally jettisoning the rhythmic and harmonic techniques of bop and hard bop, Hill worked to extend their possibilities; his was a revolution from within. He exhibited a determined command of his materials, however abstract they might sometimes be. His composed melodies were labyrinthine, rhythmically and harmonically complex tunes that exhibit a sophistication born of mastery, not chance or contingency.

    Flaws

    Year: 2020

    Runtime: 9 min

    “I never heard anyone say that, and yeah, I know exactly what it means. It has to go in there, this has to be a song.” Every song has its own story, and we all think it’s a story we’ve heard before, but we haven’t. Songbook finds and captures these intriguing stories by pulling you into the process of writing and composing. Known for its pristine sound, cinematic 4k video and eye for detail, Songbook live-captured episodes emphasize the paramount importance of quality. It addresses the on-the-spot elements of blending song and location at the right moment. Both the magical location and remarkable music interaction will get the attention they deserve. Simply because Songbook isn’t just a live music session, it lives. This episode of Songbook features Dutch singer-songwriter Flaws, who is known for his heartfelt alt-pop sound and his self-tought mixing skills, full of contrast and balance. At only two EPs and several singles out, the Utrecht-based Daan Havenith already celebrated successes with two San Holo collaborations, both having gathered millions of streams. The 2017 release "I Still See Your Face - Flaws Remix" was followed by "voices in my head - Flaws remix" in 2019. The success of the song, a gig at legendary Amsterdam Dance Event and the release of his first music video surely made the last year Flaws' best one yet. He kicked off a bright-looking 2020 with a new single, and the release of his session with Songbook. Watch him perform and walk you through the meaning behind "All We Are" and "Mindspeak" at the Wijngaard Dassemus in the Dutch city of Chaam!
