The statue of the empress of Jazz, Lady Day, who greets you as you come in, knows the score: for a quarter of a century, the New Morning saga with its ups and downs, its triumphs and its great audiences, has unfolded like a beautiful, upbeat story from a Parisian version of The Arabian Nights. 25 years of challenges and gambles won - a sheer eternity for a Jazz club - have made of the New Morning a cult institution, much like the Blue Note and the Village Vanguard in New York. As a birthday gift for Eglal Farhi, owner and high priestess of this Megga of Jazz - and for the musicians, her fellow conspirators - here is a timeless "best-of of best-of", presented by Manu DiBango and Alvin Queen. It's a lavish, 4-hour retrospective of the musical saga performed rue des Petites Ecuries by the kings and queens of Jazz, Blues and World music. For the century that has only just begun, happy birthday, New Morning!
