This amazing concert, issued here for the first time ever on DVD, features some of the only images of Lee Morgan captured on film (he was 21 years old when this concert took place) as well as a young, pre-Miles era, Wayne Shorter. This DVD shows the Jazz Messengers at the height of their skills, in a city they were very familar with (they recorded one of their most famous albums a year previously at the Club Saint Germain). All the tunes here have their highlights, yet it is Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night In Tunisia" which really stands out.

The 1988 edition of The Jazz Messengers, which drummer Art Blakey had been leading for 33 years, showed a great deal of promise. Comprised of trumpeter Philip Harper (soon to form The Harper Brothers), trombonist Robin Eubanks, the tenor of Javon Jackson, pianist Benny Green and bassist Peter Washington, this band (whose average age without counting Blakey was around 25) performs one original apiece by Green and Jackson along with five older songs on this enjoyable release. The music may not have contained too many surprises or been startlingly new, but the results are quite pleasing.

After several years of few recordings, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers re-emerged with totally new personnel on this Prestige LP. The strongest performance is a quartet feature for the great trumpeter Woody Shaw on "I Can't Get Started," but the other three selections (which include such musicians as George Cables or John Hicks on keyboards, bassist Stanley Clarke and Ramon Morris on reeds) are also worth hearing and sound surprisingly "contemporary" for the time. An interesting set.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. The 1978 Jazz Messengers was one of Art Blakey's strongest groups in years, although it would soon be overshadowed by its successor (which introduced a young Wynton Marsalis). With trumpeter Valerie Ponomarev, altoist Bobby Watson and a tenor saxophonist forming a potent frontline and new material from each of the principals (plus pianist James Williams) in addition to a lengthy ballad medley, this is a fine all-around set, last available on LP.

Reissue. Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. Hardly a free for all at all – as the album's a masterpiece of focus and direction, and a classic set from the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers! The album's a real feather in the mid-60s cap of Art Blakey –and features an expanded sound from the quintet era of his group – with a sublime horn lineup that features Wayne Shorter on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Curtis Fuller on trombone – all gliding along these soaring piano lines from Cedar Walton! Reggie Workman works some real magic on bass, too – and the tracks are all very long – with titles that include "Free For All" and "Hammer Head" – both written by Shorter – plus "The Core", by Hubbard, and a beautiful version of Clare Fischer's "Pensativa".

Remastered in 24-bit from the original master tapes. Part of our Keepnews Collection, which spotlights classic albums originally produced by the legendary Orrin Keepnews. Art Blakey's legendary Jazz Messengers recorded for numerous labels large and small during the 35 years of its existence. Few periods in the band's storied history were as inspired as its 1962-63 stint at Riverside, when the Messengers were a sextet with the incredible Freddie Hubbard/Curtis Fuller/Wayne Shorter front line and Cedar Walton/Reggie Workman/Blakey rhythm section.

This hard-hitting, mightily swinging Jazz Messengers unit may well have been one of Art Blakey's best. Propelled by the omnipresent swing and verve of the indefatigable bandleader/drummer, young Jazz Messengers Donald Brown, Charles Fambrough, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis and Bill Pierce play with masterful technique, soulful swing and unbridled fire in this live Blakey classic. Honored with two Grammy Award Nominations—Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Group and Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Solo—Concord Jazz is proud to present the incendiary Keystone 3 in stellar Super Audio CD (SACD) sound.

Art Blakey recorded prolifically during his long career, and one of his best editions of the Jazz Messengers featured Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, and Jymie Merritt, the group present on this live two-CD set, which was recorded in 1961 at the Olympia in Paris. Since this concert originated from a taped broadcast, the sound is inferior to commercial live recordings made by Blakey for various U.S. labels, though it is a thoroughly enjoyable evening of music.

Along with Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, he was one of the inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming. He is known as a powerful musician and a vital groover; his brand of bluesy, funky hard bop was and continues to be profoundly influential on mainstream jazz. For more than 30 years his band, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers included many young musicians who went on to become prominent names in jazz. The band's legacy is thus not only known for the often exceptionally fine music it produced, but as a proving ground for several generations of jazz musicians; Blakey's groups are matched only by those of Miles Davis in this regard

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Leader of The Jazz Messengers at the time of this recording for over 22 years, drummer Art Blakey was still discovering new talent. In addition to altoist Bobby Watson, trumpeter Valeri Ponomarev and David Schnitter on tenor, this particular session introduced the great pianist James Williams to The Messenger fold. Despite the changes in musical fashions, Art Blakey and his hard-bop institution were still turning out new material and solos in the late '70s that sound fresh and alive today.
