Did I tell you that I’m going to Miami? I should get DVDs in the headrest of the SUV rental I’ll be frontin’ in. I have tons of them to watch while I’m down there. In case you are looking for something to watch while your stuck in traffic at WMC/M3 this week, check these out. (smooth transition, no?)
“MILES DAVIS - The Cool Jazz Sound”A while back I mentioned this, as I was expecting to receive a review copy thanks to Clint Weiler at Music Video Distributors. I was not expecting what I got. “Stars Of Jazz” is a DVD series featuring some of the greatest jazz legends of all time, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, B.B. King and many more greats. The first feature is “The Sound of Miles Davis” .
The DVD features an 1959 episode of “The Robert Herridge Theater”. “The Sound of Miles Davis” is a 28 minute film, originally shot in 16mm black and white, so it has that authentic feel when watching it. Small effects like the light reflection off Miles’ horn that turns black also add a nice touch to the film. “The Sound of Miles Davis” features performances by the Miles Davis Quintet (Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, John Coltrane, Davis and Wynton Kelly)as well as with the Gil Evans Orchestra.
This is a real cool DVD. The video clip of “Kind Of Blue” classic cut “So What” alone is worth the price of admission here. But with it’s glimpses at so many jazz heavyweights, working in a warm studio setting, performing "Blues for Pablo," "The Duke," and "New Rhumba", it is a must have for jazz fans in particular and music fans in general. I highly recommend this one.

Studioworks Entertainment presents: Yucko The Clown in “The Damn Show”
Oh boy. The sick part about reviewing this sh!t is that I asked for it. I mean I literally requested it. In case you don’t know this clown, it’s ok. He’s a loser. He is one of those guys you’ll hear on Howard Stern making an ass out of himself for free.(Kind of like me with this blog). This DVD is bad on so many levels I don’t know where to begin sh!tting on it first.
