IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT – Covern Dizzy Gillespie: `A Night in Tunisia´

War bereits die vergangene Single des experimentellen US Black Metal Outfits IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT, nämlich die Radiohead Coverversion `Paranoid Android` überraschend, so setzt die weitere einer Reihe von Coverversionen dahingehend vermutlich noch einen drauf. Denn `A Night In Tunisia´ wurde ursprünglich vom amerikanischen Trompeter Dizzy Gillespie geschrieben und instrumental-experimentell „verwurstet“.

Steve Blanco (Bass) über den Song:

„Echoing the sounds of mid-twentieth century greatness, this tune was penned in New York City then renamed after an Exotic Place. Imperial Triumphant would love to play in Tunisia someday. Our exciting version plays particularly from the 1960 recording by Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers. Lee Morgan was on that record; he got shot by his ex-girlfriend while on a gig and bled to death. The USA produced some great art in the 1960s, and NYC used to be a great meeting point for musicians. Like the points of light in the Chrysler Building’s crown, some music transcends the ages.“
