this is my first AOTW post. Looking through the previous AOTW threads I was quite surprised
that there's never been an Art Blakey discussion here before - it's about time that changed!
It would be hard to pick one of the many excellent Jazz Messengers albums, so I decided
to avoid having to make that choice and pick a true classic from earlier times instead.
Recorded live at Birdland, NYC, February 21, 1954
Clifford Brown (tp)
Lou Donaldson (as)
Horace Silver (p)
Curly Russell (b)
Art Blakey (d)
Doesn't get much better than that!
I'll post my more detailed thoughts on these two CDs - or three LPs if you will - later. It's not quite
September 3 yet, but this way you can reacquaint yourselves with this music before the discussion starts.
All the Best,
