The legendary NYC jazz club Birdland was sacred ground for drummer Art Blakey who recorded 3 live albums for Blue Note at the venue between 1954-1960: "A Night at Birdland", "At the Jazz Corner of the World", and "Meet You at the Jazz Corner of the World". This last date featured one of the greatest lineups of Blakey's powerhouse outfit The Jazz Messengers with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor saxophone, Bobby Timmons on piano, and Jymie Merritt on bass. Spirits are high on this superb outing from the iconic introduction by MC Pee Wee Marquette through 2 volumes of thrilling hard bop.
This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on heavyweight vinyl at Optimal.
