Super Guitar Trio: Larry Coryell/Al Di Meola/Biréli Lagrene – Live At Montreux 1989 (DTS DVD/Eagle Eye)


Picture: C     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Concert: C+



Larry Coryell just loves being in trios and as a sort of companion to Three Guitars (see link below) and he groups together in another solid arrangement, joined this time at Montreux by Biréli Lagrene and Al Di Meola as a Super Guitar Trio.  Running about 71 minutes, it is a pretty good concert, but the 1989 taping is just shorter than expected.  The songs in this time include:


1)          PSP #11

2)          Tango Suite (for two guitars)

3)          Orient Blue Suite /Traces Of A Tear

4)          Musette De Paris Avec La Rue Dupierre #5

5)          Waltz

6)          Braziliance

7)          No Mystery

8)          Spain



The 1.33 X 1 color video image is fuzzier than it should be for its age, though in this form, it is hard to tell if this is PAL or NTSC.  The sound is available in PCM CD-type 2.0 16bit/48kHz Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 AC-3 and especially decent DTS options, but the 5.1’s show the age and limits of the recording obviously not conceived for or as multi-channel.  There are no extras on the disc, though there is an essay in an illustrated paper foldout inside the DVD case.
