Bela Fleck and the Flecktones on DVD

In February, Bela Fleck (pictured left) and the Flecktones will release a DVD featuring live concert footage culled from two shows in Fairfield, Conn. Entitled Live at the Quick, the disc will present the Flecktones’ genre-skipping mix of bluegrass, jazz and pop in 5.1 Dolby Surround sound and will also include special features such as band and guest musician interviews and documentary footage. Guest musicians featured in the concert include tabla player Sandip Burman, steel drummer Andy Narell and Tuvan throat singer Congar Ol’Ondar.

The DVD’s release date, Feb. 12, 2002, will also see the release of a companion CD on Columbia. And for DirecTV subscribers, Live at The Quick will in fact premiere in January, in a special “Freeview” presentation. The concert show will air 24 hours a day on Jan. 1, 4, 5, 6, 11, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, and 26.
