artArt Blakey at the “Subway” in Cologne,
probably on February 1, 1985.

In the far away corners of one one of my harddisks with clips from the Otto Flückiger collection I found three more clips of Art Blakey with or without his Messengers.

The first one comes from  July 24, 1980 when Blakey played at the Jazz Festival in Antibes. The Messengers are: Art Blakey (dr, ldr), Valery Ponomarev, Wynton Marsalis (tp), Robin Eubanks (tb), Bobby Watson, Billy Pierce, Branford Marsalis (ts), Kevin Eubanks (g), James Williams (p), Charles Fambrough (b), John Ramsay (dr).

I do not know what tune they are playing, but it is not “Stairway To The Stars” as announced.

 

The next one is a drum battle between Blakey, Billy Cobham (or is it not Cobham?) and Simon Phillips (of Toto fame) -thanks to Penny L. for identifying him . This clip comes from the 1982 Montreux Jazz Festival, I do not know the exact date. Does somebody?

And finally a better quality version of the Jazz Messengers at the Subway in Cologne  probably on February 1, 1985. I had uploaded this before but the old version was a pain to watch. The band: Art Blakey (dr), Terence Blanchard (tp), Donald Harrison (as), Jean Toussaint (ts), Mulgrew Miller (p), Lonnie Plexico (b).

After the introduction by Alan Bangs they play “Oh By The Way”, “Tenderly”, “One By One”, “Jodi” and “The Theme”

Enjoy!
