Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers at the Cafe Bohemia
Some years ago I found this recording by accident. This has been recorded right on my birthday Nov. 23, 1955.
I have bought the CDs and listened to this great recordings very often since then, especially every year in the days before and after my birthday. This is now one of my all time favorite CDs.
Some information from Wikipedia:

It featured the third incarnation of the Jazz Messengers, Blakey’s career-spanning band, and is the first of two volumes recorded on November 23, 1955 at Café Bohemia, a famous night club in Greenwich Village in New York.
