Product Description

While any performer worth his or her salt won’t play a song the exact same way over and over again for thirty years, only someone as gifted as Smith will allow her material to evolve to meet the challenges of changing times and circumstances. Always pushing the envelope lyrically, on this night she and her band allowed the spirit of the jazz greats who had previously graced the festival’s stage to imbue their music. As her long time stalwart and guitar player Lenny Kaye, commenting on the night’s performance in his liner notes for the DVD, puts it: “Patti once again defines our credo: there are no definitions but those we choose to create for ourselves.” This artist and her band will never be limited by labels or concern themselves with conforming to other’s expectations of what they should sound like.

Decades on from her debut landmark album –Horses,” Patti Smith has once again proven she is as relevant and exciting as ever.
