Autour Du Blues meets Larry Carlton & guest Robben Ford – New Morning: The Paris Concert (Inakustik DTS DVD)


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



The DVD releases of Larry Carlton and Robben Ford have been some of the best jazz releases we have seen in about five years and so, it makes total sense that someone would bring the two of them together for a concert of some sort.  The New Morning: The Paris Concert is the one to do it under the banner Autour Du Blues.  For starters, here are some links to the previous coverage of both:


Ford New Morning DVD



Ford Ohne Filter DVD



Carlton Ohne Filter DVD



Carlton/Steve Lukather Band New Morning DVD




Now this show taped in late 2006 is on DVD and features the following tracks:


1)     Black Night

2)     Got My Mojo Working

3)     Rock Me Baby

4)     Stormy Monday

5)     Reconsider Baby

6)     Ain’t That Peculiar

7)     You Gotta Move (Tu Dois Partir)

8)     Down In Mississippi

9)     Mama Talk To Your Daughter

10)  Blackjack

11)  Bad Bad Whiskey

12)  A Change is Gonna Come

13)  She Belongs To me

BONUS So Fine + Hand In Hand With The Blues



This is as good as anything Carlton has on DVD and though I was not happy with some of the covers (namely track 5) I have to admit that there is a rare, good, unusual chemistry that is somewhat indescribable, but the kind music livers will recognize and we do not see enough.  That is enough to put this one on the “take a look” list.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is taped and a little soft here, but is definitely a nice shoot and we’ll be curious to compare it to a Blu-ray when one is issued.  The DTS 5.1 soundtrack is better than the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix and even has advantages over the decent PCM 2.0 16/48 Stereo track.  The combination, especially with the DTS, has some impact.  The only extra are the two tracks listed above.
