The Jazz Sessions series spotlights unaccompanied performances by some of the legends and bright young stars of the jazz world. Designed and recorded specifically for television, this Solos DVD offers viewers front row seats for an intimate and unique jazz experience. Each program features complete musical pieces, insightful interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage. Shot in stunning HDTV with multiple moving cameras and a medley of elegant cinematic lighting, it showcases an exciting and dynamic variety of jazz styles - from the blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and the experimental. James Blood Ulmer is one of the few guitarists to have forged a style based largely on the traditions of African-American vernacular music. Ulmer is an adherent of saxophonist/composer Ornette Coleman's vaguely defined Harmelodic theory and plays with a stuttering, vocalic attack; his jagged lines speak with the authority of a free jazz improviser and the accent of a soul-jazz tenor saxophonist. His solo guitar work is an expressive, hard-edged, loudly amplified hybrid. But Ulmer isn't limited in his musical scope. In these sessions, he reveals himself to be an instant inventor of repute on the flute and a memorable songwriter and blues singer. Songs performed include: Are You Glad to Be in America? · Black Sheep · In the Name · Street Bride · Satisfy (Story of My Life) · Secret · Where Did All the Girls Come From? 50 minutes.

"The beautiful violin set and music stand all arrived on time for my son's first lesson - just as you promised! You made the little fellow so very happy. The wonderful way you conduct your business is a real credit to your company. I wish you and Activemusician all the success in the world!"

"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."
