Two timeless, live ART BLAKEY and the Jazz Messengers recordings-Live At Kimball's (recorded live in San Francisco) and New York Scene (recorded live in New York City)-are now available together, for the first time, in one specially-priced package! Both recordings feature the tightly-knit, mid-'80s Jazz Messengers ensemble of Terence Blanchard (trumpet), Donald Harrison (alto saxophone), Mulgrew Miller (piano), Lonnie Plaxico (bass), Jean Toussaint (tenor saxophone), and of course the indefatigable ART BLAKEY at the drums. One of the most muscular, fiery and creative ensembles in the long, distinctive lineage of Blakey-led Jazz Messengers units is heard at their best, live, from Coast to Coast. "Art Blakey·consistently ignites the explosives that create the fire throughout every song, sparking climax on top of climax, making this, indeed, one of Art Blakey's more enticing works of art."
