Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers The Big Beat XRCD

Catalogue number AWMXR-0020

Art Blakey was one of the greatest of all jazz drummers, a masterful talent scout and the inspiring leader of the Jazz Messengers. For 35 years (1955-90), the Jazz Messengers featured brilliant young talent who were pushed by Blakey to write new music and play at their very best. One certainly could not coast with Blakey’s explosive drumming constantly egging on the players. The who’s who of jazz passed through Blakey’s band for several generations, with everyone from Freddie Hubbard and Wynton Marsalis to Benny Golson and Horace Silver benefiting from the hard-swinging experience.
