Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: Moanin'
Analogue Productions CBNJ 84003 SA
Art Blakey (drums)
Benny Golson (tenor sax)
Jymie Meritt (bass)
Lee Morgan (trumpet)
Bobby Timmons (piano)
Art Blakey's most successful album gave us Bobby Timmons' "Moanin'" and Benny Golson's "Along Came Betty" and "Blues March," tunes so powerful that Blakey played them almost every night for the next 30 years. This beautifully performed and recorded session made the Jazz Messengers a jazz institution and put Golson, Timmons and Morgan to the forefront of jazz.
Originally released in 1958.
