As cool as his CDs are, actually being able to see Jorgenson do his gypsy jazz thing expands the enjoyment exponentially. The dual-DVD In Concert was filmed at the 16th Century Teatro Olimpico, in Vicenza, Italy. A third guitarist and twin-sister trombonists augment the Quintet, providing additional pump to the pompe. Throughout two hours, the cameras seldom stray from Jorgenson’s hands, making In Concert something of a de facto instructional video, particularly when he’s performing spot-on versions of “Minor Swing” and other Django classics. Viva!
