One of a number of Art Blake
y albums titled after "Night In Tunisia" – and most likely the best! The tune is a perfect fit for the Blake
y Jazz Messengers format – long, rhythmic, really stretching out, yet allowing plenty of space for the horn players to solo. Players include Bobby Timmons on piano, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor – a killer lineup that's in really classic form here – driven on nicely by Blake
y's drums and bass work by Jymie Merritt. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", with Blake
y thundering through impeccably – plus the tracks "Yama", "Kozo's Waltz", and a version of Timmons' great "So Tired".
(63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp, and "ear". Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has discoloration due to age, light wear, and some small stains, with some wear and splitting on part of the top seam.)
