i watched today, it was soooooooooo good, i watched the entire video and found it really helpful. i would also like to say that dave, i love your master class on bill evans. i am still refering to videos 4&5. i would love it if you did another bill evans class!!!
i had the chance to watch through this today.

i wish i could've been there to witness this live in-person, so i did the next best thing and put on my 3-d glasses. it was so real!

but seriously, it was incredibly illuminating to hear dick's excellent responses to the many intelligent questions put to him by both dave and the audience members.

and the playing was sterling! both the solo and the duets!

talk about kicking but and taking no prisoners!

on the technical side, the sound quality was impeccable, and i was very impressed with both the camera work and the editing.

this was a very professional production!

i gotta get mr hyman's "century of jazz piano" cd, too.

thank you!!!
