Art Blakey, leader of the highly influential hard-bop group The Jazz Messengers (which was usually a quintet or a sextet), made a rare tour with an 11-piece little big band in mid-1980. Included among the personnel were such unknown youngsters as trumpeter Wynton Marsalis (then age 18), Branford Marsalis on baritone and alto, trombonist Robin Eubanks and guitarist Kevin Eubanks
Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival July 17, 1980, and the Northsea Festival on July 13, 1980 (track 1). Go Unlimited. Recorded sporadically at the two jazz festivals, Live At Montreux And Northsea features a breathless all-star line-up of Jazz Messengers including the masterful alto saxophonist- composer Bobby Watson, ace trumpeter Valery Ponemarev, pianist- composer James Williams, Bill Pierce and even debut brotherhood appearances by Wynton and Branford Marsalis as well as Kevin and Robin Eubanks
The remarkable group also included the regular members of The Jazz Messengers (trumpeter Valeri Ponomarev, altoist Bobby Watson, tenor saxophonist Billy Pierce and pianist James Williams) and even a second drummer, John Ramsey. A historically significant and rather enjoyable release.
