Pianist, composer, and arranger Toshiko Akiyoshi leads what is considered to be one of the finest 16-piece big bands in jazz in this full-length concert DVD. The band sizzles masterfully and serves up an individual sound while continuing to swing, maintaining a traditional big band feel. From the western bebop of pianist Bud Powell, to eastern folk music structures of Japan and the creativity of the band's principle soloist, saxophone/flutist Lew Tabackin, these various musical influences blend into a rich texture, creating an originality to the renowned Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra. Featuring Frank Wess and Lew Tabackin, this DVD provides an additional dimension by infusing the concert with interviews from Akiyoshi and Tabackin. 60 minutes.
