No video here, just a spirited band showcasing the great jazz saxophonist Don Cherry, and a typical solo set list from the time, beginning with "Sweet Jane" and ending with "Walk on the Wild Side," of course, with VU's "Lisa Says" and "I'm Waiting for the Man" and Reed's "She's My Best Friend" in between.
