CD Reviews

If, like me, you?re a big fan of Moanin? , ?
Antoine P. MANENS | Rennes, France | 06/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"then, you urgently need this recording. Art Blakey is on the drums of course, Benny Golson on the sax, Lee Morgan on the trumpet, Bobby Timmons on the piano and Jimie Merrit on the bass. Even though it has the same personal as « Moanin' », « Au club St Germain » has a different spirit. This is LIVE recording. So the tunes are maybe not as `clean' as they could be, but wow... this guys can swing. Let's take a tune everybody knows... Moanin' (fifth track of the first CD) : over 14 minutes of loud hard bop, of crazyness and of good mood... you can feel the heat of the club and, with some imagination, you can see some people dancing. All the major tunes of The Jazz Messengers are there, and for Blakey's fans, listen to his solo on A Night In Tunisia."
