Jazz Icons

Reelin' In The Years, a music/video production company, is releasing an incredible set of DVDs featuring some of jazz's greatest figures, including John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Wes Montgomery and Louis Armstrong called Jazz Icons. These DVDs feature rare and sometimes unreleased concert and studio footage, mostly in black and white, and the results are incredible. I have the above releases and they are great to have in the background even if you're doing something where you can't see a television or computer screen. If you to start with one, get the Wes Montgomery DVD because recorded video of him is extremely rare. You need to see how he played the guitar to believe it.
