A Night at Birdland Vol. 1 is a 1954 release by jazz artist Art Blakey, and a quintet which featured Clifford Brown, Lou Donaldson, Horace Silver and Curly Russell. It was first released by Blue Note Records as a 10″ LP (BLP 5037) and then as a 12″ LP (BLP 1521) containing material from the second 10″ album. It was reissued for the first time on CD in 1987 with two additional tracks (an alternate take of Wee-Dot and an improvisational piece titled Blues), previously released on a 2 LP Compilation in 1975 called Live Messengers (BN-LA473-J2). The CD was reissued again in 2001 as an “RVG Edition” remastered by Rudy Van Gelder with the tracks in a different order. The 1987 CD used the second 12″ LP cover, the 2001 CD revived the original 10″ LP cover.

The compositions themselves are varied, with Blakey contributing an energetic drum solo on “The Freedom Rider”; at least three of the compositions on the album are blues pieces. “El Toro” features a solo by Shorter incorporating the sheets of sound technique pioneered by John Coltrane. The CD version contains three bonus tracks originally released on the album Pisces.
