The Peter Erskine Trio Live at Jazz Baltica
Beautifully-recorded, the multiple camera angles lend a "you are there" ambience to the experience. Expanded from the original VHS version, the DVD also includes a bonus track the encore of Erskine's "The Music of My People" and a discography complete with sound samples.
It was with great disappointment that this trio came to an end in '99, although everyone, most notably Taylor, has gone on to further accomplishment. But for those who were unable to catch this fine trio in concert, Live at Jazz Baltica is a welcome release; and for those who were fortunate enough to have seen them, a reminder of just how vivid and vibrant this trio could be.
