Art Blakey - Hal Leonard Corporation
This DVD boasts an exceptional one-hour concert by Art Blakey from Paris in 1965. The performance showcases one of the few undocumented Blakey bands, the "New Jazzmen," featuring the incomparable Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, as well as Jaki Byard on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, Nathan Davis on sax and, of course, Art Blakey on drums... truly a powerhouse quintet! Freddie Hubbard's incendiary playing on Blue Moon and the blistering 24-minute version of his own Crisis, serves as a cogent reminder that he was one of the most innovative trumpeters in jazz history. Duration: 60 minutes.
