Yes, the video quality is horrible and the sound is somewhat distorted but the swing and specialness of the band shine through if you give the video a chance.
Who remembers Sundays at Tapestry? Anna Arraya-Colon and Tony Rodriguez used to have events and pay tribute to notable musicians of the time. Good times!
