Art BlakeyArt Blakey's Big Band ... CD
Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Quite an unusual record from Art Blakey – a rare big band session, recorded with a lineup that's quite different than the usual Jazz Messengers! Turns out, Blakey's quite good in this setting – and has the same firey energy to direct a larger ensemble that he has when working with a ... (Jazz) read more CD

Art BlakeyBlakey (plus Introducing Joe Gordon) ... CD
Verve/Mercury, 1954. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic hard bop reissue! This CD combines two rare early sessions by Art Blakey – one recorded under his name, the other under the leadership of trumpeter Joe Gordon, a fantastic player who died an early death, and never got to record as much as he should have. Both albums were only ... (Jazz) read more CD

Art BlakeyBuhaina's Delight ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $6.99
A landmark recording by a whole new chapter in Art Blakey's career! During the early 60s, Blakey expanded the Jazz Messengers from a quintet to an incredibly tight sextet – adding in the trombone of Curtis Fuller for an extra-punched up frontline that also included Freddie Hubbard on trumpet ...

Art BlakeyCaravan (20 bit remaster with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside, 1962. Used ... $6.99
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman ...

Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
A rare Jubilee Records album from Art Blakey – one of his non-Blue Note sets from the late 50s, cut during the year of 1957 – a time when the Jazz Messengers were hopping around a lot of different labels! This version of the group is searing and soulful – and features Johnny ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Art BlakeyFree For All (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Hardly a free for all at all – as the album's a masterpiece of focus and direction, and a classic set from the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers! The album's a real feather in the mid-60s cap of Art Blakey –and features an expanded sound from the quintet era of his group – ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... CD
EMI/Warner (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from ...

Bethlehem/Avenue, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A well-titled set from Art Blakey – considering the hard-driving sound of the group! The album's one of the best from that unusual year of 1957 – almost a "lost" year for Art, when he was working away from Blue Note with a very different lineup of the Jazz Messengers than on ... (Jazz) read more CD

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

Universal (France), 1958. Used ... $6.99
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse, 1963. Used ... $8.99
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! The album's still got all the hardbop charm of Blakey's best Blue Note dates, but also feels ... (Jazz) read more CD

Long, lean live energy from Art Blakey and a well-remembered version of The Jazz Messengers – a group that includes both Branford Marsalis on alto and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – plus great tenor from Bill Pierce as well!

Excellent lost live work by Art Blakey – playing here with one of the best-ever versions of the Jazz Messengers!

During the late 50s – after an initial burst of recordings with Blue Note, and before a later successful run for the label – Art Blakey recorded on a number of labels with a lesser-known version of The Jazz Messengers.

One of Art Blakey's first true moments of genius!

An explosive session from an expanded edition of the Jazz Messengers – recorded at a key point when Art Blakey moved the group up to six members instead of five! Although bigger than the group on most Jazz Messenger Blue Notes, the sextet have an energy that's almost tighter – a sense ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
