2 Jazz DVD Set (Jazz Collection Vol. 1/Jazz Collection Vol. 2)

Jazz Collection Vol. 1 DVD — Five jazz pioneers are featured in this collection of selected live performances from a generation ago. The audio quality is excellent, and there's nothing quite like seeing these musical greats in action.

Featured performers include Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Kenny Drew, trumpeter Red Rodney, vocalist Willie Dixon, and Sax-man Dexter Gordon. Musical performances include: In Your Own Sweet Way, Love Letters, Parker's Mood, The Blues, Wang Dang Doodle, Skylark, Confirmation and 'Round Midnight. Total runtime for this music is approximately 75 minutes. In addition, this DVD includes an 18 page (screen) history of jazz, plus biographies for each featured performer.

Jazz Collection Vol. 2 DVD — The lineup for this DVD includes Drummer Art Blakey, Saxophonist Stan Getz, Kenny Drew, and the great Dizzy Gillespie. See the music performed close up—better than a front row seat. In the songs from Art Blakey, two players in the orchestra are the young Wynton and Branford Marsalis. And the music performed by Dizzy Gillespie has the Afro-Cuban Jazz sound he was known for popularizing. Both the audio and the video are excellent.

Songs include: New York, Hushabye, Sandy, Built for Comfort, Seventh Son, Little Man, Gypsy Folk Tales, The Night Has 1,000 Eyes, A Time For Love, and A Night in Tunisia. The total run time for the music is 73 minutes. In addition, other features on the DVD include an 18 page (screen) history of jazz and biographies for each featured performer.
