A Night in Tunisia - Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers 
Occasional thrills for people who don't like jazz. Possibly the most exciting version of Dizzy Gillespie's A Night in Tunisia commited to vinyl. Vinyl? This is the remastered 2004 CD edition. Scorching Jazz Messenger line-up boasts Wayne Shorter on tenor sax and Lee Morgan on trumpet (listen for spontaneous "damn" call out during Morgan's title track solo.) Fun, vigor and immaculate Art Blakey beat. Other tracks pretty classy too.
