"At the time of this ... concert, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers were introducing two new members: Wayne Shorter, whose sound and conception would forever change the sonic landscape of the band and Walter Davis Jr., who had as much drive on the piano as Blakey had on his drums. The band featured Lee Morgan on trumpet .... Seeing rather than just hearing Blakey's soaring dynamics and irresistible rhythms reveals just how powerfully he controlled the shape of the music and drove each soloist to new heights."--Container.
