- 3.Slide No. 2

Recording information: 1968.
Although this budget-priced in-concert recording of Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers features minimal information, the music here speaks for itself. On LIVE, the legendary drummer/bandleader steers his ensemble through a potent set of tunes including his own frenetic "New World" and Slide Hampton's slinky "Slide #2." While longtime Blakey fans will likely opt for performances released on bigger labels, jazz neophytes may enjoy this disc.
