Product Description:

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.

Description by Koch Entertainment Distribution:

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 rollercoaster 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.
