DescriptionThe Paris Jazz festival is a tradition in the jazz concert calendar with artists from around the world delighted to accept an invitation to play. The unique 1987 festival series not only captures some of jazz's finest innovators in concert but also rehearsals for this prestigious event and candid backstage interviews with the artists. In 1986 Chico Freeman brought together The Leaders, an all star sextet of internationally recognized bandleaders. The group, consisting of Arthur Blythe, Lester Bowie, Chico Freeman, Kirk Lightsey, Cecil McBee and Don Moye, set the standard for eclectic and innovative music from a band comprised entirely of composers, and for many were the highlight of the 1987 festival. Tracklist: 'London', 'Midnight Train', 'Mud Foot', 'Freedom Swing Song', 'My Blueberry Hill', 'Kirk's Improv' and 'Zero'.
