Art Blakey • A Night In Tunisia

 



Review by Rovi Staff
Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers hit their artistic peak with the powerful A Night in Tunisia - This incarnation of the group included Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, and Jymie Merritt along with their leader, Blakey - As the Messengers entered their most fruitful period for Blue Note, Blakey drove his men relentlessly with powerful grooves, heavy swinging, and shouts of encouragement - This session documents the full power of his assertive leadership and the masterful playing of his sidemen, each rising to legendary status under his tutelage - Long known for their creative arrangements within the context of small-group jazz, the Messengers push the definition of hard bop and blues to the limit here - Dizzy Gillespie's title track is evidence enough of the creative power of this group: Blakey's steam shovel-like mambo, Morgan and Shorter's wailing solos, and a dramatic ending make for a stunning piece - Shorter's contribution includes the swinging "Sincerely Diana." The soulful Bobby Timmons presents his delightful "So Tired," a bluesy number in the spirit of his classic "Dat Dere." Also included are Lee Morgan's smoky "Yama," the bouncing "Kozo's Waltz," and the classic "When Your Lover Has Gone."

Reseña escrita por Rovi Staff
Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers alcanzaron su cima artística con el poderoso A Night in Tunisia - Esta encarnación del grupo incluía a Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons y Jymie Merritt junto a su líder, Blakey - Cuando los Messengers entraron en su periodo más fructífero para Blue Note, Blakey impulsó a sus hombres implacablemente con potentes grooves, swing pesado y gritos de ánimo - Esta sesión documenta todo el poder de su firme liderazgo y la maestría de sus músicos, cada uno de los cuales alcanzó un estatus legendario bajo su tutela - Conocidos desde hace tiempo por sus arreglos creativos en el contexto del jazz en pequeños grupos, los Messengers llevan aquí al límite la definición del hard bop y el blues - El tema que da título al disco, de Dizzy Gillespie, es prueba suficiente del poder creativo de este grupo: El mambo a modo de pala de vapor de Blakey, los solos ululantes de Morgan y Shorter y un final dramático conforman una pieza impresionante - La contribución de Shorter incluye el swing "Sincerely Diana" - El conmovedor Bobby Timmons presenta su encantadora "So Tired", un número bluesero con el espíritu de su clásico "Dat Dere" - También se incluyen la humeante "Yama" de Lee Morgan, el saltarín "Kozo's Waltz" y el clásico "When Your Lover Has Gone".
