Barre Phillips [electronic resource]: Live in Vienna

MVD Entertainment Group
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Filmed in early 2005 at Vienna's famous Porgy & Bess jazz club, this concert features Barre Phillips on bass accompanied by John Hollenbeck on piano and drums. Insightful artist interviews are interwoven with the footage. Phillips is part of an exclusive group of well-improvising American musicians who fit comfortably into the free jazz of the 1960s as well as the European free improvising scene. He has performed and recorded with many of the jazz greats, such as Don Ellis, Bobby Hutcherson, Bertram Turetzky, and John Surman - and at the time of this concert was also the president-elect of the International Society of Bassists. This video offers a rare look at his immense talent.
