Thanks for letting us know... got to watch this in quiet tomorrow!

Too bad I don't understand sh*t when they're speaking Dutch!

My Dutch is non-existent, but even not understanding what was being said, the footage is incredible.

Also, dig the fact that you get some of the sessions for ICP 01, the New Acoustic Swing Duo, on film. I have to thank Pedro Moreno (our own epistrophy_arts) for hipping me to this bit of history.

What a beautiful document. Check it out here.

Han in a tux!!!!

Re: not knowing Dutch--you, Clifford, are so deep into this stuff you probably should have a passable knowledge of some of the European languages. I wonder how much information, insights, analysis, etc. I miss about my favorite artists because my German is weak, and my French and Italian is at the level of a four-year-old. There's so much "jazz" literature that doesn't get translated.

Yes; I know just a little French & Spanish. My languages in college were Latin and classical Greek. So there you go...

Just got around to watching this today. I was able to make out some things here and there, but not enough to put together all of the conversations. Still, the footage is worth watching alone!

Thanks again for posting!
