Art Blakey - The Complete Blue Note Collection 1960-1962

Art Blakey - The Complete Blue Note Collection 1960-1962


Drummer, composer and bandleader Art Blakey is without a doubt one of the most celebrated and frequently-recorded jazz musicians in history. Alongside his group The Jazz Messengers, he released a staggering 76 albums, a further 17 under his own name and dozens more as a sideman. His unique drumming style, characterised as a dark cymbal sound punctuated by frequent loud snare and bass drum accents in triplets or cross-rhythms by Ken Burns award-nominated documentary series Jazz, helped pioneer the bebop genre.
Art Blakey remains one of the most enduring legacies in all of jazz. When the genre was in danger of dying out, there was still a scene, and it was Blakey who - almost instrumentally - kept it going. This collection, containing the next eight, fully re-mastered releases in the Art Blakey catalogue, documents an era when the Messengers were at the very top of their game, combining the unmistakable style and ability of Blakey alongside some of the finest jazz musicians yet to make their names. Featuring many of the greatest recordings ever made, this set will leave nobody in doubt as to how Art Blakey became one of the most important and influential figures in jazz history.
