A Night at Birdland Vol. 3 is a 1954 jazz 10" LP release (BLP 5039) by Art Blakey Quintet for Blue Note Records. It was originally the third in a series of albums recorded during a pre-Jazz Messengers date at Birdland Jazz Club with Blakey leading. The three albums were repackaged as two 12" LPs in 1956,[1] though a third 12" LP appeared much later containing previously unissued material. The CD re-issue repackaged the three LPs into two CD volumes.
