This is a same-day tape of a live performance at the House of Blues; the cd was released in 2011.
The music is spectacular. Think bluegrass as performed by classically trained musicians. The repartee between the performers is witty and their comments added depth to the music.
My only quibbles (and they are quibbles) are with the direction and camera work. The director was so caught up with moving from tight artist closeup to tight artist closeup that the viewer was not given sufficient time to watch the ensemble as a whole. As much of the enjoyment came from watching and listening as the artists wove into and out of the music, that part of the experience was degraded.
I've had this same reaction watching the live Met opera broadcasts as well. It's one of the downsides of these events. But it's not enough of an issue to deter attendance, when the other option is not to see the performance at all.
