One Night With Blue Note

Em 1985, a legendária gravadora de jazz Blue Note voltou à ativa. Para comemorar a ocasião foi realizado um concerto no Town Hall, em Nova York, no dia 22 de fevereiro.

Para uma ocasião deste porte, nada mais justo que um time de bambas do jazz ser escalado para fazer desta noite, um evento inesquecível e histórico.

Os "escolhidos" foram o baixista Ron Carter, os pianistas Herbie Hancock, Cecil Taylor, Michel Petrucciani e McCoy Tyner, os bateristas Art Blakey, Jack DeJohnette e Tony Williams, o trompetista Freddie Hubbard, os saxofonistas Lou Donaldson, Charles Lloyd, Johnny Griffin, Jackie McLean, Stanley Turrentine e Joe Henderson, os guitarristas Stanley Jordan e Kenny Burrell, o vibrafonista Bobby Hutcherson e o organista Jimmy Smith.


No repertório, o espectador vai ouvir clássicos do jazz como “Cantaloup Island”, “Moanin’”, “Blues Walk”, "Recorda-Me e “Summertime”.

O show na íntegra também foi lançado em 4 LPs (foto ao lado). A versão em CD não está mais no catálogo da gravadora Blue Note e se tornou "objeto de desejo" dos fãs de jazz.

Abaixo você pode ver o DVD completo na internet, mas vale muito a pena procurar o DVD original nas lojas e comprá-lo. Bom divertimento.
