Shame, the DVD has many brilliant moments - both the video and tunes. It's just the omissions that frustrate - if it had a broader range it would have been perfect!

Irony is that Ra has all these Henderson style arrangements that in many ways are less hip than "the experimental sounds" (I loled at that) of Dizzy and Bird. Guess the Arkestra played too many straight 8s for Crouch and co :)
