This outstanding DVD, recorded live at the Funkhaus, Hannover for a TV broadcast, on December 14, 1972, not only gives us the opportunity to listen to Webster, but far more rarely, to see him in performance, exquisitely backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio featuring the late Danish bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen & Tony Inzalaco, drums.
Webster and Peterson played together many times, and the tenor saxophonist often said that Oscar was his favorite accompanist.

Classical violinist Itzhak Perlman is not a jazz improviser, so this meeting with the Oscar Peterson Quartet is more a loving tribute to the melodies (ten veteran standards plus two Peterson originals) than a strong jazz date. While Perlman sticks closely to the themes, one's attention focuses much more on Peterson, who had suffered a serious stroke a few years earlier and had been inactive ever since. Peterson sounds healthy in his supportive role, and although it is doubtful if he sweat much during this relaxed music, his apparent comeback is great news. Guitarist Herb Ellis has the most rewarding solos, although his spots are short.

The great bassist Oscar Pettiford live in Hamburg 1958, second chapter. Fine melange of modern mainstream, cool jazz and hard bop, with Jimmy Pratt (dr), Hans Koller (ts), Dusko Goykovich (tp), Michel Hausser (vib), Attila Zoller (g), Roger Guerin (tp) and Armin Rusch (p), heard here in a second previously unknown Pettiford session from Germany. Comes as carefully mastered longplay CD and 2-LP vinyl set (gatefold). Certainly Pettiford's best recorded live performance on the European jazz scene in excellent sound quality.

The film is based on face-to-face conversations with the Brazilian architect, with an in medias res beginning and a ’spontaneous’ ending: “The interview is over, isn’t it?” asks Niemeyer, when they begin to talk about women as everyday pleasures for the 100 year-old architect.

Oscar è un ghetto-nerd dominicano obeso e goffo, ossessionato dalle ragazze (che naturalmente lo ignorano), dai giochi di ruolo e dai romanzi di fantascienza e fantasy. Vive nel New Jersey sognando di diventare il nuovo Tolkien e, più di ogni altra cosa, di trovare l'amore. Per riuscirci, il nostro eroe deve sfidare il micidiale fukú , l'antica maledizione che perseguita i membri della sua famiglia da generazioni. La prosa vivida e giocosa di Junot Díaz, che incarna la molteplicità di luoghi, culture e linguaggi alla base del romanzo, ci trasporta dalle periferie americane contemporanee al sanguinario e insieme mitico regno del dittatore dominicano Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, mentre la storia del mite e sventurato giovane si intreccia a quella della sua gente e della sua terra, che finiranno per plasmarne il destino.
