This wonderful intimate session was, I think, Zoot's last recording session and, in my opinion, one of his very best. The original album was out of print for decades so it's great that it's out on DVD with the interesting conversation as a bonus. Gustafsson was a busy studio musician who made few jazz recordings. However there is one earlier one with Zoot which I haven't heard.
