there used to be, i tried unsuccessfully. i wish GGjr would at least freakin release a statement. it meant a hell of a lot to me to see the man in action for the 1st time....and its removed...by his -son-? so weird

Is Green Jr. sharing any of the money he collects from the sale of the video on payloadz with Green's co-performers (or their heirs) in the Paris footage (i.e. the bassist and the drummer)?

but he didn't know how to play rhythm guitar. i like grant, but those live 70's cd releases are kind of annoying in that after he finishes soloing and then plays behind the next soloists, he just plays the same exact lick/patern over and over for the entire duration of the tune.

was glad to catch it for a minute - hope it is commercially, legally available at some point. Good set (and I'm not even a hardcore GG dude).

a snippet from that video was first posted on youtube by an italian "collector" earlier this year. i unsucessfully tried to trade with the guy, who frankly acted like a huge jerk. i understand that GG Jr most likely got the video from that guy. i purchased it without any problems from the payloadz site. it's a good video, although a better drummer would have helped.

I still wonder whether the original film excluded Burrell's and Kessel's solos, or whether someone edited those out at some point. Between the two, I'm hoping it's the latter. Anyway, I'd be more interested in buying this if the performance was complete. I love Grant, but video footage of Kenny Burrell from that period isn't exactly growing on trees either.
