5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound Quality!, 20 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Night In Tunisia (Audio CD)
I'd read a review that said the sound quality on some of these Hallmark CDs, to be questionable, in the least. I can safely say, that the sound quality on this CD is excellent. Blakey gives his kit a battering, on the title track.

Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers - A Night In Tunisia (Vik LAX 1115)
Bill Hardman (trumpet) Jackie McLean (alto saxophone) Johnny Griffin (tenor saxophone) Sam Dockery (piano) Spanky DeBrest (bass) Art Blakey (drums)
NYC, April 8, 1957

"A Night in Tunisia" (Gillespie, Paparelli) -- 12:55
"Off the Wall" (Griffin) -- 7:16
"Theory of Art" (Hardman) -- 9:46
"Couldn't It Be You?" (Blakey, McLean) -- 8:12
"Evans" (Rollins) 6:30

This is the earlier album from 1957, not the same name Blue Note album, from 1960.

Purchased to replace battered LP - Brought back memories of late nights and Ronnie Scotts Although very much of an era still fun and involving - supremely competent musicians doing what they do (or did) best.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Jazz release., 8 Nov 2012

This review is from: A Night In Tunisia (Audio CD)
This is a strange record, because when they were in the studio they recorded two version of each track except for the tune "Evans" and because of the length of each tune, they were issued one time on a double Lp set on the RCA label. Then they were out with all the tracks on a cd I think only in Japan.

What we have here is the four longest takes of each of the songs plus "Evens", the four shorter takes are on "Vol 46" of "The Modern Jazz" 100 cd set on the Document label, a box set that has many interesting items, some of which are very rare (Like these takes) or expensive if tried to be bought as single issued cds. items.
