Art BlakeyOh By The Way ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A casual title, but a hell of a cooker from the legendary Art Blakey – one of those great albums from his overlooked run during the 80s – a time when he still had plenty of fire, and the same continuing dedication to the best young players around as he did during the Blue Note years of ... read more CD

Art BlakeyOrgy In Rhythm Volume 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good ... $18.99
A true orgy in rhythm from Art Blakey – a set that not only features his drums next to the kit of Art Taylor, but which also adds in a bevy of other percussionists – including Sabu Martinez, Patato Valdez, and Jose Valentine! Joe Jones and Specs Wright also bring in additional jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art BlakeyReflections In Blue ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Key proof that Art Blakey was still going strong in the late 70s – continuing his 60s legacy of working with the best young players he could find, in a setting that was bristling with sweet soul jazz energy! This version of The Jazz Messengers includes some tremendous players – ... read more CD

Hi Hat (UK), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99
Art Blakey with a very hip group – and an under-recorded one as well – a version of the Jazz Messengers with the great Woody Shaw on trumpet, plus Carlos Garnett on tenor, George Cables on piano, and Scotty Holt on bass!

Art BlakeyS Make It ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good- ... $16.99
A lost classic from Art Blakey – quite different from some of his Blue Note work! The album's a very swinging mid 60s session, noteworthy for the presence of John Gilmore, recording here in one of his few appearances away from Sun Ra. Gilmore wails on tenor, and he sounds great next to Lee ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $33.99

RCA (France), 1958. Very Good+ 3LP ... $33.99
Seminal work from Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers – recorded at a time when that group was really coming together!

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersBuhaina ... LP
Prestige (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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

RCA/Bluebird, 1958. Used ... $5.99
A reissue of one of Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides from the late 50s, a killer album that sports a great lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, Bill Hardman, Sam Dockery and Spanky DeBrest.

Fontana, Late 50s. Good ... Just Sold Out!
Art Blakey's soundtrack to this fantastic French film is one of his best non-Blue Note albums ever – and it's got the additional bonus of featuring performances by the great French tenor star Barney Wilen! The tunes here are way more than just short scene-setting soundtrack numbers – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
