I agree :D
I've watched it all. It's difficult to actually sit and watch :)
The music is available as a free (slow) download here - with a CC license:

only downside is I'm going around the place singing totally sexist hip-hop lines, in sometimes very inappropriate places...

superboyac:
I hope I haven't posted this already.  But I found the excerpt below from Gene Harris' biography (written by his widow), so I feel compelled.  Gene is my primary influence in piano, his music is wonderful.  Following the excerpt below is one of the songs from the concert described (two parts):

In reality, I don't think Gene and I viewed Otter Crest as a turning point in his life until a few months later when a videotape of his performance, sent by a member of the Jazz Society of Oregon sound crew, arrived in the mail. At the time, neither Gene nor I had any idea that the concert had been taped. I was surprised and excited and wanted to watch the tape immediately, the gene was strangely hesitant. "What?" I said. "What are you talking about? I was there; you have got to see this. You're not going to believe it. First of all, you're not going to believe the way you played, and second of all, you're not going to believe the joy written all over your face, John's face, Jimmy's face, the audience screaming and yelling. You could put your hands in the air and feel the energy and the love. There aren't words to describe what you guys did."

He seemed almost embarrassed at the prospect of watching himself on tape, which I didn't understand. "Haven't you ever seen yourself perform?" I asked.

"Never," he said. "Not once, and I'm not sure I'm ready now."

"Well, it's about time," I said, taking the tape and putting it in our video recorder and then getting him a beer. As Gene sat and watched he became transfixed. Like so many others who had enjoyed his music over the past 30+ years, he was alternately laughing, shaking his head, and fighting back the tears throughout the two-hour recording. When it ended, he just sat there for a minute, as if not believing what he had just witnessed. "My God," he finally said, "now I know why people are the way they are after I finish playing. I never really understood."

"Didn't you ever listen to your recordings?" I asked.

"No, not very often," he replied, as if suddenly realizing the impact his music had on others. "I...never...knew..."

I think it was then--in watching the Otter Crest crowd's wild and spontaneous reaction and the way Smith and Heard fed off of his playing--that Gene realized that he needed to share his talent with a larger audience and seek the widespread recognition that had eluded him for so long.

TaoPhoenix:
Oh my!

First a quibble: Does it have to be a music video, or just a song? Because of X videos it's a lot of work to find the ORIGINAL video on some songs!  Some songs didn't even HAVE a video, so it got added later.

Okay, some random stuff:

Bulbous Bouffant - a graphically inserted video version

Then some Tim Minchin:
