Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: Just Coolin'

Read "Just Coolin'" reviewed by Chris May


It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man or woman in possession of a good quantity of Art Blakey albums, must be in want of a lot more. Previously unreleased albums are particularly enticing. So do not be fooled by the Reid Miles-inspired cover of Just Coolin': the disc is previously unissued. It presents Blakey ...

Jean Toussaint: Live At The Jazz Cafe 091218

Read "Live At The Jazz Cafe 091218" reviewed by Chris May


Most times, the transatlantic flow of jazz musicians is from east to west. Less frequently, as with Jean Toussaint's relocation from New York to London, it is contrariwise. Hot from four years as a member of Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers's Jazz Messengers, Toussaint arrived in Britain in 1987. He soon established himself as a ...

Alyssa Allgood: Out Of The Blue

Read "Out Of The Blue" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Chicago vocalist Alyssa Allgood devotes her first full length album to an unexpected source: the classic hard bop repertoire of Blue Note Records. The label is mainly known for instrumental jazz, and all of these selections were originally instrumental. This presents no problem for Allgood, who demonstrates equal facility scatting, singing wordless vocalise, and writing lyrics ...

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: The Sesjun Radio Shows

Read "The Sesjun Radio Shows" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The old and irksome “but is it jazz" argument has probably never been brought into play when it comes to drummer/bandleader Art Blakey (1919-1990) and his ever-changing line-up of Jazz Messengers. The music Blakey and his usually young players made was most certainly jazz, of the hard bop, hard-charging variety--brash and brightly hued, and joyously swinging. ...

Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers: 'S Make It

Read "'S Make It" reviewed by David Rickert


The Blue Note Jazz Messengers recordings are so highly regarded that the ones the group did for other labels at around the same time tend to fall by the wayside. This shouldn't be the case; Blakey was such a determined taskmaster that he was able to get great performances out of his players on just about ...

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: The Witch Doctor

Read "The Witch Doctor" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan


Like the other newly-reissued Blakey set, Roots and Herbs, the music contained on The Witch Doctor was recorded in 1961 and came out on LP much after the fact. It too features the great line-up with Morgan, Shorter, and Timmons, but this time the writing is more a group effort, with two cuts apiece from Morgan ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
