B.B. King: Live Blu-ray, Video Quality

   


Like most concert films nowadays, B.B. King Live was shot on high definition video and is presented on Blu-ray with a 1080i/AVC encode. This certainly isnt one of the flashier concert titles on the market—it was originally aired on PBS—but the image is clear and colorful, with no real distractions by way of compression mishaps or encode issues. The Grainger Studio stage is bathed in rich blue and purple lights for most of the show—I didnt spot any banding in the fine color gradients—and skin tones are warm and consistent. Black levels are solid and balanced too. Clarity is not as immediately impressive—the image seems a hair soft in longer shots—but close-ups reveal ample fine detail, especially in the glitzy textures of B.B. Kings signature sequined coat. A slight layer of noise often shows up in the picture, and there are a few scattered incidents of aliasing and moiré shimmer, but nothing major. Overall, the better-than-broadcast-quality image is pretty typical for these kinds of productions—it may not be particularly striking, but its certainly serviceable.

Note that because it was nearly impossible to capture screenshots of the film in 1080i—thanks to a near-constantly moving camera and combing artifacts—all the screenshots in this review were captured in 720p and do not reflect the full quality of the image.


B.B. King: Live Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  


B.B. King Live defaults to a strong DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that gives a good representation of what the show mustve sounded like for those in the audience, albeit cleaner and clearly sourced from the mixing board. As I mentioned above, B.B.s backing band is somewhat generic— theyre a bit too polished and professional—but they at least sound good, with bright horns, hard hitting but never overpowering drums, and bass thats deep and defined, carving out those age-old 12-bar blues progressions. Of course, were really here to hear King, and his guitar tones sound wonderful—creamy and expressive—and his raw-throat singing is balanced perfectly in the mix. The rear channels are used mostly for crowd ambience, but you will hear some musical bleed, most prominently the drummer ride cymbal. The disc also includes an uncompressed 2.0 stereo track, which is a solid option too if you dont have a surround sound system. The mix is very similar to the 5.1 track but—as youd expect—it sounds slightly more compressed, with less room for the individual instruments to breathe. Either way, the audio presentation here is great, and sounds fantastic when turned up loud.
