It's a beautiful thing that there are so many older Blakey vids being reissued with some of his most significant groups. This is one of them. The sound quality is remarkable, and although the video leaves a little to be desired, it's passable. This was recorded shortly after Wayne Shorter had joined the group and his compositional influence hadn't taken hold so it's an interesting lineup. Lee Morgan is of course incredible and the trading that Art does in just about every tune is classic stuff. The main thrust here is that this is jazz as it should be- great tunes, swinging like crazy, unreal musicianship. You will not be disappointed.

I have a previous dvd of this concert which is little longer (art balkey addressing the audience at times)the reissue I must credit cleaned up the darkness in the video in the beginning minutes a little.still ceases to amaze me of arts powerful and precision drumming,jymies down home and swing bass playing(very soulful)lee morgans sharp trumpet,waynes stand up sax playing and walter bishops melodius but care ful box playing,peace.
