Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Ritual

Format: LP
Availability: Out of stock



The first stable formation of Art Blakey’s celebrated Jazz Messengers was born in 1954 and consisted of Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, Horace Silver and Doug Watkins, the same group that recorded the Blue Note LP Jazz Messengers at the Cafe Bohemia in November of 1955. Although this 1957 date (Ritual!) didn’t feature such a star-studded group as the 1955 aggregation, with a Blakey extended drum solo and the hard and impas-sioned blowing of alto saxophonist Jackie McLean, it makes for an essential addition to any Art Blakey collection.
