On the evening of November 29th 1958, on the stage of the Kurhaus in Scheveningen, when Art Blakey grabs the microphone to say »I would like to take a moment and say good evening on behalf of the Jazz Messengers and myself«, everyone knows that he is living a historic moment. Pianist Bobby Timmons has just created the iconic „Moanin'“ and saxophonist Benny Golson the famous „Along Came Betty“, which the Jazz Messengers mix with compositions by their illustrious companions, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. The essence of world jazz is on stage, and is taken up again on this edition forgotten until today.
