On the evening of November 29, 1958 on the stage of the Kurhaus in Scheveningen, when Art Blakey grabs the microphone to say "I would like to take a moment and say good evening on behalf of the Jazz Messengers and myself," everyone knows that he is living a historic moment. Pianist Bobby Timmons has just created the iconic "Moanin'" and saxophonist Benny Golson the famous "Along Came Betty," which the Jazz Messengers mix with compositions by their illustrious companions, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. The essence of world jazz is on stage, and is taken up again on this edition forgotten until today.

Recorded at the Kurhaus in Scheveningen, Netherlands, Nov. 29, 1958.

Very quiet vinyl. Album starts off with Art speaking and introducing the band, not a peep of noise, one would think this was pressed at QRP. Slight warp on both discs but livable. The content is great, starts with Moanin. Seems to be tape drop out or someone bumped a mic on side c, heard a noise I’ve never heard before but only for a few seconds. The ballad to Clifford Brown is fantastic, really shows off the dynamic range. The master is odd to me, almost like it’s cut on an all tube system, I find I have to bump the volume to achieve normal results, this is on all the Lost Recordings releases too. Art’s”ode” to Blue Note is funny, I enjoyed him introducing all the tracks. Felt Like I was there.
