Art Blakey & Jazz Messengers - Roots And Herbs (Blue Note Tone Poet Series)

Description:

Vinyl LP pressing. Blue Note Tone Poet Series. One Art Blakey's greatest albums with the Jazz Messengers, Roots & Herbs, is little known. In 1961, the group featured Lee Morgan (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Bobby Timmons (piano) and Jymie Merrit (bass). Recorded in Rudy Van Gelder's New Jersey studio, it's a brilliant set of six Shorter compositions, like the playful "Ping Pong" and the clever "United." It's among Blakey's finest.

Tracklist:

  • 1 Ping Pong
  • 2 Roots and Herbs
  • 3 The Back Sliders
  • 4 United
  • 5 Look at the Birdie
  • 6 Master Mind
