Description by OLDIES.com:

In the case of Art Blakey, the name "Jazz Legend" is wholly appropriate. Born in 1919, Blakey served his musical apprenticeship in the bands of Billy Eckstine and Dizzy Gillespie where his reputation as a drummer grew until Art's death in 1990. The Jazz Messengers were formed in 1955 and were pivotal in nurturing the hard edged Be-bop sound and the jazz greats of the future such as: Lee Morgan, Benny Golsen, Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, Donald Byrd, Johnny Griffin, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis and Branford Marsalis, to name just a few. This unique DVD also includes a set by Johnny Griffin.

8 tracks performed live at theiVillage Vanguard Club, New York 1982 including "Fuller Love," "My Ship" and "A Monk's Dream."

Product Description:

Art Blakey and his band The Jazz Messengers helped redefine jazz, offering a harder version of be-bop that is much imitated, but never bettered. Sadly Blakey passed away in 1990, but his legacy is so timeless that the music sounds as fresh as ever. This live concert recording was shot in 1982.
