Descripción del producto
Grusin steps out from behind the various machinations of film and television production to take centre stage on An Evening with Dave Grusin, a groundbreaking live recording that captures him conducting and performing with a host of stars, and backed by the 75-piece Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami, Florida, in December 2009. The album is a collection of 12 songs by Grusin, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and Henry Mancini. Guest performers on the date include Jon Secada, Patti Austin, Monica Mancini, Gary Burton, Arturo Sandoval, Nestor Torres and Sammy Figueroa. In addition to his highly successful career as a jazz musician, Dave Grusin has composed music for films and TV programs such as On Golden Pond, The Graduate, Tootsie, The Firm, St. Elsewhere and many others.

Constant Interruptions to the flow of the concert... ie, you cannot just watch the concert without being constantly given a narrative either just before the piece gets going, or even INTO the piece, and when the pieces played blend into each other, hearing these LOUD narrative voices of the producer (or yes, even the performers), well, it just takes so much out of the experience. At first it was "huh, ok, novel little narrative splashes"... Did they think I would want to hear them EVERY time I want to listen to my favorite musician? I won't play the thing much because of the sense of being jarred out of the concert-feeling and into a "Lecture about Music Performance and Production". They should have put that stuff on a "Director's Cut" track.
ALSO, the navigation is flawed... you can't play "Memphis Stomp", even though it's a song-list button, without listening to "America" first. AND, Memphis Stomp winds up AS the credits, in a PIP window. AND, the forward/reverse buttons on your DVD player will NOT function... ie, you can't fast forward or rewind; you're at the mercy of the song-list buttons for any concert-play. (I suppose Mr. Rosen should stick to CD's and leave the DVD world to video producers).
So as I said, if you love Dave Grusin, it's worth it just to see and hear him in his element. Masterly, subdued, calm, and incredibly musical. The rest is GOOD, the tunes, the singers, the orchestral arrangements, and yes, even the polish that Larry Rosen and Phil Ramone bring to the production.
Which, finally, leaves me with the impression that this DVD was NOT a homage to Dave Grusin and some pretty awesome musicians, but to the egos of a couple of other guys who really would have shone best if they'd let the musicians be the only thing you heard.
Yes, REALLY: You cannot just watch and listen to this concert. You have to put up with narrations that are LOUDER than the music, EVERY time you play it.
Larry, shame on you!
And besides the buttons not working, no chapter stops, there is no minutes counter either. The display reads "play" throughout.
I'm a fan of Dave (and he and Larry's old CD label), but I won't be buying another of these productions like this. Leave the interviews in the extras section and let the concert be a concert. (Also it has DTS-HD Master as an audio format, not mentioned anywhere on the labeling.)
This misguided Blu-Ray can't make up its mind. It never decides if it's a register of the concert or a documentary on Grusin and ends up being neither. As other reviewers have stated, it can be infuriating when you get spoken words overlaid on the music track. For instance, Grusin's narration spoils the effect of the gentle, sparse notes during the beginning of "On Golden Pond". Adding insult to injury, his fabulous solo from "The Firm" is relegated to the end credits scroll.
Also, the Blu-Ray itself has several problems, like the lack of chapter stops and the fact that it won't display the timing during playback.
A sorry release that reminded me of "Lalo Schifrin: Movie Music Man", another documentary/concert combo that was released a decade ago and also undermined the work of a great artist.
Buy one of Michel Legrand's concerts instead. They are way more enjoyable than this one. Grusin deserved better.
They team up again on An Evening With Dave Grusin. The DVD includes some of Dave's Classic Movie Themes like On Golden Pond, It Might Be You with a vocal performence by Patti Austin and Moon River song by Monica Macini the daughter of the late Henry Mancini. Backed by the 75 piece Henry Mancini insitute Orchestra They sound great. Dave Grusin's Piano Skills are still in Top Form. On the downside there are to many Voice overs during the songs,and I would had liked to hear Dave perform more of his classic songs like St.Elsewere from the Medical Show of the 80's and Mountain Dance from the Meg Ryan Film Falling In Love.
