Kaeshammer's music is fantastic; enjoyed both the audio CD and the concert DVD!
Michael Kaeshammer continues to be a personal favourite, and this concert CD and DVD show him and his band at their best. He's amazing at the piano, and has branched out into vocals more recently. There's a wonderful dynamic and vibrant energy in the concert, a strong chemistry with the band, and a real connection with the audience. I've seen him in concert once, and he's a true master on stage. The rapid switching between camera angles that the editors selected to do tends to be a bit distracting, but the music itself is smashing. My favourite of the concert must be Kaeshammer's amazing reworking of the 19th century tune John Brown's Body.
The CD is good -- short but sweet -- but the real treat in this package is the concert DVD. Not only is Michael Kaeshammer one of the best boogie-woogie/stride/jazz piano players in the world, he's also grown into a hugely entertaining stage performer. He owns his music, he obviously respects and is respected by his band mates, and he puts on a show. I still prefer his piano playing over his vocals, but his vocals have improved too -- and I think are indicative of how his confidence has grown. This is one performance DVD that will make you jealous you weren't in the audience to see it live.
