Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.72
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's intense expression that crackles with energy, and the band is intimate with the repertoire."
JazzTimes - p.145
"Harper turns in some dramatic, emotionally charged tenor work on a sparse arrangement of 'Angel Eyes'...'

Product Description:

Personnel: Art Blakey (drums); Billy Harper (tenor saxophone); Bill Hardman (trumpet); Julian Priester (trombone); Ronnie Mathews (piano); Larry Evans (bass guitar).
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.
