Art Blakey

Complete Concert at Club Saint Germain (2 -CD)


Lee Morgan (tp), Benny Golson (ts), Bobby Timmons (p), Jymie Merritt (b), Art Blakey (d)

Reference: 69237_2

Recorded at the celebrated Club Saint Germain, the formation presented here marks the third incarnation of Art Blakeys Jazz Messengers, with trumpeter Lee Morgan (then only 20 years old), tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, pianist Bobby Timmons and bassist Jymie Merrit. For the last two tunes, bop drum pioneer Kenny Clarke (who was living in Paris) substitutes Blakey.

Besides the individual gifts of each member, the group forms a compact unit with a cohesive sound. We play modern jazz, explained Blakey during a 1958 interview, and to understand it you must listen. We study, we rehearse. The Jazz Messengers are very serious about getting the music across to you. If you dont want to listen, maybe the person sitting next to you does.
