O’s Notes: This is a polished documentary that takes viewers through the history of three brothers and their jazz adventures. They hail from Philly and have a storied background with different introductions and progressions through bebop. Percy (b), Jimmy (sax) and Albert “Tootie” (d) are recognized as top performers individually and as a unit. The DVD chronicled their achievements to date and also gave us a glimpse of their world. They touch on the impact of drugs, military service and unions. This is educational, enjoyable and entertaining.
