“This is classic Jazz Messengers; ‘hard bop’ at its best, creative and exciting ” MusicWeb

Recorded in 1976, the concert features outstanding solo performances from Blakey and members of his band, performing on a makeshift stage in the Umbrian square to a huge crowd.
At a time when many jazz musicians were experimenting with electronics and fusing their music with pop, the Messengers were a mainstay of straight-ahead jazz, performed with passion and panache.
