On Wednesday (19th), avant-garde metal trio Imperial Triumphant have dropped a new single/cover of “A Night In Tunisia” via Century Media Records. American trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie originally wrote the track. 


Steve Blanco (bass) comments:

“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.”


Listen to the track below:
