O’s Notes: Drummer Al Foster performed at the famous New Morning Club in Paris July 2007. He appears as a quintet with Eddie Henderson (t), Doug Weiss (b), Eli Degibri (sax) and either Aaron Goldberg or George Colligan on piano. The video quality was excellent in high definition. The close-ups capture the intensity and showcase featured musicians at the right times. These guys played with their eyes closed but we assure you they weren’t sleeping! They opened with “So What” beginning a wonderfully entertaining experience. We liked Aaron’s fleet work on the keys on “Shed” and Henderson’ delicate touch on “Missing Miles”, two highlights in a strong set. The program included fresh arrangements of “Cantaloupe Island” and “So Near So Far”. HDTV.
