Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (aka Moanin')


new and sealed LP

180 gr

Blue Note, 1958

New Copy


One of Art Blakey's first true moments of genius!

This transitional version of the Jazz Messengers included two parts ¿ Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons ¿ of the holy Morgan/Shorter/Timmons trilogy, and it's also got the added bonus of Benny Golson on tenor, who was at the height of his power at this point.

The record really shines in ways that few Blakey albums shone since his days with Horace Silver ¿ in that it's a forum for fresh new writing, most importantly Golson's landmark compositions "Blues March" and "Along Came Betty", and Timmons' instant classic "Moanin".

The whole album's wonderful, though, and Golson's edgey modernism adds a strong dimension to the group's usual soulful romping groove!

A 1959 jazz album, reissued on 180-gram vinyl, packaged in a gatefold sleeve. This title is part of the 'Jean-Pierre Leloir Collection'. Leloir was the most important photographer to cover the French music scene during the '50s, '60s and '70s. For the series some of the most important classic jazz albums were selected to match with his visual genius.
