John Scofield: New Morning - The Paris Concert
The multi-camera shoot reveals plenty for students of any of this group's talented players, and avoids the split-second camera cuts that make some of today's videos a bit of a disruptive experience. If edits are supposed to create a flow, a sense of visual narrative over the stories being told musically, then New Morning: The Paris Concert successfully conveys the energy of being there with a shoot that makes watching it over and over again more than possible; it makes it absolutely essential.
