Kinetic Hues is not a DVD in the normal technological sense. It does not provide surround sound, or a DVD-Audio layer, or extras like biographies, photo galleries or interviews. It is really a home movie, with all of that genre’s raw veracity and charm. One of the camera operators is seen crawling around among the musicians. The audio is PCM two-channel. But Kinetic Hues is more fun than most of the jazz DVDs currently available because the music is so strong.
