Ellery Eskelin DVD

Ellery Eskelin has released a homemade DVD of a 2003 European tour. Read about it here (scroll down a bit), read Ellery's rejoinder there (again, some scrolling is necessary), and read another review and discussion yonder.

I haven't seen the DVD myself (I wonder if it would work on my zone 2 player?), but I can only recommend Ellery's trio CDs (Eskelin/Parker/Black) on Hat Hut (with Kulak 29+30 or Arcanum Moderne, the latest, as the places to start) or as a sideman on Dennis Gonzalez's equally fantastic NY Midnight Suite on Clean Feed.
