Jazz Appreciation Society
Erskine, Mainieri, Brecker, Gomez and Elias having the best of fun in a Danish museum. Dick watches this video at least once a month.
Steps Ahead - Copenhagen 1982
An oldie, featuring Neil Jason on bass and Richie Morales on drums. Diggin’ on that vintage sound. Morales goes nuts, soloing at 10.00m.
Brecker Brothers - Montreux 1980
One of the most breathtaking concerts of The Breckers caught on good-quality tape, boasting legends Chambers, Whitty, Genus and Stern. Don’t watch before sleeping.
Brecker Brothers - Barcelona 1992
Riley is the master of second-line. Here, the former Ahmad Jamal and Wynton Marsalis drummer shows a mean sense of versatility.
Herlin Riley Quintet - New York 2017
Yellowjackets are on top of their game in this mindblowing German TV show. Kennedy kicking serious ass. Run For Your Life!
Yellowjackets - Ohne Filter 1994
The embodiment of jazz drumming and father of the pounding hard-bop sound. Big kudos to saxophonists Lee Morgan and Benny Golson. Night in Tunesia at its finest.
Art Blakey - Belgium 1958
Williams took drums where they’d never gone before, from Miles to McLaughlin. Behold the man-size gong behind him!
Tony Williams Lifetime - Montreux 1972
Rounding up our 2006 Bring Jazz Home Tour, me and my buddies Evert and Ties witnessed this monster play at the Hollywood Bowl. He already had me at Wish though.
Joshua Redman - Newport 1993
As a student in the preliminary year of the Amsterdam Conservatory jazz department, I had the chance to attend a Bill Stewart clinic. Here he can be seen in one of his finest trio settings.
Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, Bill Stewart - Village Vanguard 2013
Steve Gadd is God. According to a lot of drummers at least. Here’s the man who double-handedly married tapdancing and military rudiments to an endless list of the best jazz and pop records in the world.
Steve Gadd Band - Leverkusen 2015
The profound percussive groove of this awesome pianist has always been a source of inspiration. Anthony Jackson and Gadd - a divine rhythm tandem. This footage brings me to tears.
Michel Petrucciani - Stuttgart 1998
Simon Phillips in his pre-Protocol years, gigging with Stanley ‘School Days’ Clarke, in yet another sweet Montreux vid.
