http://www.jazzvideoguy.tv presents "All Ears, All The Time"

Dennis Irwin was one-of-a-kind, a man who profoundly touched everyone who crossed his path. This cinematic tribute, created by Bret Primack, includes the Joe Lovano Nonet from "New Morning: The Paris Concert," as well as video Bret shot at Joe's "Streams of Expression" recording session in December of 2005.

"Dennis left town on March 10, 2008," Bret explains, "the day of a Jazz at Lincoln Center benefit organized by his friends Joe Lovano and John Scofield. It was the third benefit for Dennis, following similar events at Small's, and the Village Vanguard. When the Jazz community learned of his life threatening illness, there was an immediate response, an unprecedented burst of love and support, both financial and spiritual.

He was the sort of person who inspired that. In addition to being a world class bassist, his essential goodness, his easygoing nature, and laid back sense of humor made him a welcome presence in every situation. He will be missed, but never forgotten."

Special Thanks to: Joe Lovano and the cats from Joe's Nonet: Barry Reiss, Larry Farrell, Steve Slagel, Ralph LaLama, Gary Smulyan, the late (and very much missed) John Hicks, and Lewis Nash. Check out the Video Liner Notes for the group's last recording:
