A Night at Birdland Vol. 2 is a 1954 release by jazz drummer Art Blakey, and a quintet which featured Clifford Brown, Lou Donaldson, Horace Silver and Curley Russell. It was first released by Blue Note Records as a 10″ LP. Two years later, the three 10″ LPs in the set were reissued as 2 12″ LPs. Two of the three tracks (“Mayreh” and “A Night in Tunisia”) of the original 10″ Vol. 2 were included in the 12″ Vol. 1. The 12″ Vol. 2 incorporates all three tracks from the 10″. All tracks have been included in this transcription book.
This book is a part of the highly ambitious Erik Veldkamp project to completely transcribe every note Clifford Brown ever put on record.
