A new version of Last. The Legacy of Art Blakey: Live at the Iridium. Overview (current section).
The Jazz Messengers is a 1956 album by the Jazz Messengers, released by Columbia Records. It was the last recording by the Jazz Messengers lineup featuring pianist Horace Silver. In 1968 Columbia reissued the LP in their Jazz Odyssey Series with a new cover under the title Art Blakey with the Original Jazz Messengers.
The complexity, the power and the musicianship of Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers were celebrated by five band alumni in a sextet anchored by drummer Lewis Nash. Performing in two concerts at the Phoenix-born drummer's namesake jazz club were tenor saxophonist-leader Javon Jackson, alto saxophonist Bobby Watson, trumpeter Eddie Henderson, pianist Benny Green and bassist Peter Washington, with Nash in the Blakey hot-spot. The second set was even more powerful and compelling. Much of the Blakey playbook was from the 1950 and '60s, but it was "Caravan" from the 1930s that effected the most audience reaction, each musician exploding into solos with power and expression.
In 1947 Art Blakey formed a short-lived big band that he named the 17 Messengers. He also recorded with a smaller group called the Jazz Messengers. In 1954 Blakey was a member of a co-operative band wit. ead Full Biography. Live at Ronnie Scott's: Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
The overall results are predictable and very much in the hard bop tradition but full of spirit, not so much adding on to Art Blakey's legacy as much as simply revisiting it. ~ Scott Yanow. 1 One by One The Jazz Messengers 10:18. 2 La Mode The Jazz Messengers 11:36. 3 Whisper Not The Jazz Messengers 11:3. 4 Oh, By the Way The Jazz Messengers 10:46. 5 Plexus The Jazz Messengers 10:0. 6 Blues March The Jazz Messengers 11:58
