Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers
Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers for decades were not only one of jazz's most popular groups, but were a training ground for young musicians who often went on to stardom. From Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter to Freddie Hubbard and Cedar Walton to Chuck Mangione and Keith Jarrett to Wynton and Branford Marsalis and so many more, Blakey's groups were a starting point for dozens of future stars and group leaders. On these pages we have dozens of arrangements from various composers and arrangers representing different eras of the group, with one thing in common: music that is always fresh and exciting and fun to play and hear.
