Shot expressly for this project in a loft in Brooklyn, NY, The Things That We Used to Do is a very special, intimate performance DVD of Jack Rose and Glenn Jones, capturing the artists playing solo and together with gorgeously shot visual lyricism. The takes are live, but the performances are not in front of an audience; rather, it was three cameras, two musicians, and a home transformed into a studio for a day which created the perfect backdrop for the players and their very personal music to unfurl. The result is an astounding, one-of-a-kind document of two leading lights of contemporary solo acoustic steel string guitar music in their prime, turning in stellar performances.

*Featuring two full in-the-studio sets by Jack Rose and Glenn Jones, and two duets.
*Lengthy interview of the artists together, conducted by Byron Coley.
*Bonus live footage of Jack Rose and Glenn Jones shot in concert at Plays and Players, Philadelphia, PA, March 22, 2009.
*Beautifully packaged in a cardstock amaray DVD sleeve.
