Woody Shaw and Herbie Hancock jam with Blakey


At the 1987 Mt. Fuji Jazz Festival, drummer Art Blakey took time off from leading the Jazz Messengers to head a big band.

On a rather uptempo version of A Night In Tunisia, after Blakey brings it in, trumpeter Woody Shaw (just two years before his passing) takes a blazing solo.

Herbie Hancock also swings hard during his piano solo, clearly enjoying playing in this special setting.
