Art Blakey & Thelonious Monk, no one can be better than this duo. Good synergy of rhythm and drive with nice fusion of style. Excellent quality recording with the tape transferred from a Atlantic 4-track tape This album is a very good choice for all Jazz lovers.
this gets 5 stars because of the music and performance. monk and blakey - they could do a 5 star Mary Had a Little Lamb. remastering and sonic quality pretty good too.
I really like this recording with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Thelonius Monk. I listened to The Messengers live in the sixties and was enthusiastic. Now you can listen to them in high quality sound in your livingroom in an early recording from 1958. Art Blakey was a fantastic drummer and bandleader. In this version of Jazz Messengers you listen to a marvellous Thelonius on piano and Johnny Griffin on soulful tenor sax.
