This is black and white footage of a short set recorded for German TV. The John Coltrane quintet includes Eric Dolphy on flute and alto sax, and there are some moments of fierce, broiling improvisation as you'd expect from the same line up that recorded Live at The Village Vanguard. However, the camerawork is irritating - much play is made of the angular, futurist-styled studio set, the director framing each shot so that the musician is part of an abstract composition. You can see the thought behind this approach, but in practice it just gets in the way of enjoying seeing the musicians play this music. During one McCoy Tyner solo, most of the shot is of a massive girder cutting across the screen, with the top of Tyner's head peeking above, some distance away. Plus there's only three tunes (but that's a lot of music with this group!) The real treat for me was the solo Lenny Tristano concert that's also on this DVD. It's just unadorned (musically and visually) straight genius. He plays like some miraculous hybrid of Thelonious Monk and Keith Jarrett, the piano keyboard is in shot all the time and the audience is transfixed.
