A rare live set from a great late 70s lineup of the Jazz Messengers – the group that featured Bobby Watson on alto sax, David Schnitter on tenor, and Valery Ponomarev on trumpet – a very cooking combo that was one of Art Blakey's best since the Blue Note years! The tunes here are ... read more CD

Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $5.99
A killer pounding session from Blakey!

Art Blakey, without any Jazz Messengers – but still coming through loud and clear, thanks to help from a unique group that features Sonny Stitt on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Art Davis on bass!

Art BlakeyNight At Birdland Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good ... $119.99
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art BlakeyNight In Tunisia (RCA) (French pressing) ... LP
RCA (France), 1958. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99

Art BlakeyNot Yet ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1988. Used ... $8.99
Art Blakey in the 80s has just as much magic as in the 60s and 70s – and an album like this is key proof of that fact! The album's got a flowing, easygoing groove that's really great – kind of an extension of modes that Blakey first started hitting during the Prestige years – ... read more CD

Art BlakeyOlympia Concert (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Fontana (Japan), 1958. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent live set by the Jazz Messengers – recorded in Paris in 1958, but with a hard heavy groove that's right up there with their best Blue Note work. The group at this time – Blakey, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Jymie Merritt – plays hard, heavy, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art BlakeyWitch Doctor (plus bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – but a set that was unreleased by Blue Note for quite a few years! The set's one of two gems the group recorded in 1961, but which were held back until the end of the 60s – and it features a stellar version of the ... read more CD

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersAt The Cafe Bohemia Volume 2 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good ... $84.99
Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham. Hard hard hard bop, cracklin' with energy, and a great example of the kind of playing that made the group an instant success. Tracks on this second volume include " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street with Lexington on one side. NOTE: this is a great early pressing, but side one has a small bump on the vinyl that wobbles for a number of spins – but plays fine with heavier tonearm weight. Rest of record is VG+!)

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersBuhaina ... LP
Prestige (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
An amazing album that has Art Blakey completely reinventing himself for the 70s! Blakey shifts from straight hardbop to kind of a modal soul jazz groove, touched with some of the electric playing of the younger jazz generation, but not enough to qualify as fusion or funk. Instead, he's working ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersHard Bop ... LP
Columbia, 1956. Good+ ... $11.99
A killer album – one of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides, and a blinding set of hard-driving jazz that well earns its title! The group is one of Blakey's pre-Timmons/Morgan/Shorter ones – with Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, Spanky DeBrest on bass, and Sam Dockery ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
