Concert Solo / Lettre A Michel Petrucciani (DVD)
- Autore Michel Petrucciani
Filmed in 1996 at the Marciac Jazz Festival in France, this performance brings the "great romantic of jazz piano" (New York Times) back to life with a stunning performance. Michel's symphonic approach to the instrument brings the listener on a virtual roller coaster ride through some of his (and his fans') favorite material. This DVD also features a documentary that follows the young pianist stunted in growth by the 'glass bone disease,' through his departure from Orly Airport to the launch of his career in America.
In celebration of Michel Petrucciani’s amazing career as a jazz pianist, this exciting collection includes two films that capture both his personal life and vibrant work. CONCERT SOLO: A MUSICAL MASTERPIECE presents Petrucciani’s incredible performance at the 1996 Marciac Jazz Festival in France, where he played mesmerizing versions of "Take the A Train," "Estate," and "Manhattan." In 1983’s LETTRE A MICHEL PETRUCCIANI (LETTER TO MICHEL PETRUCCIANI), director Frank Cassenti chronicles the musician’s struggle with "glass bone disease" and the early days of his stateside success.
