Album Review

Drummer Art Blakey took time off from his busy schedule as leader of The Jazz Messengers to participate in this quartet session with saxophonist Sonny Stitt, pianist McCoy Tyner and bassist Art Davis. Although this session was under Blakey's leadership, Stitt (on both tenor and alto) emerges as the main soloist, playing his trademark bebop lines with creativity and typical enthusiasm. [A 20-bit remaster of Jazz Message was released in the fall of 1999.]

Customer Reviews


I've had this album for some time now, and I still can't get enough of it. A year later, I still listen to it constantly. Cafe is hypnotizingly great. For 7 dollars? It's a great buy.

Great Album!

The musicianship on this album is excellent. If you love bebop and jazz in general this is a great buy. I still listen to this even though I've had it for about 2 years.
