Album Review

The 1958 version of The Jazz Messengers was widely recorded during their stay in Paris, but this CD does not duplicate any of the other recordings previously released. This band (with trumpeter Lee Morgan, Benny Golson on tenor and pianist Bobby Timmons) was particularly strong, and it is quite enjoyable to hear them stretch out on such songs as "I Remember Clifford," "Moanin'," "Blues March" and "Whisper Not." Hard bop at its best, all of it propelled by the powerful drumming of Art Blakey.

Wow

Great cd. I totally agree with the person who commented about Lee Morgan's solo on Whisper Not. It is amazing!
