You are essentially buying an important piece of American history with this one. It is "the music that changed the world" according to Quincy Jones and while some may look upon that statement as a bit of hyperbole, I tend to agree with him. To see these five artists on film is something truly special for any jazz fan. To be able to watch the young, baby-faced Lee Morgan on trumpet, the austere, perfectionist Bobby Timmons on piano, the blissful and boisterous leader Art Blakey on drums, the reflective, reliable Jymmie Merrit on bass and the composed, temperate Benny Golson on sax... you can't tell me it gets much better than that! These cats play with such intentness, nothing too flashy, never flamboyant, it was all about business, all about playing proficiently and giving it your all.
Trust me folks, this one is a thing of beauty!
recording of Moanin', the biggest selling Blue Note recording. This is the best video of Lee Morgan
that exitsts. The audio and video quality are flawless. It is a must have for any jazz lover or student of
the music. DO NOT PASS ON THIS!!! It is KILLIN'!!!
I play jazz drums as a hobby and one of my heroes is Art Blakey. I pounced on this when I saw it and was not disappointed. The video as well as the sound is flawless. The performances are incredible with each one being a highlight. Watch for Art's cymbal stand "pyrotechniques" at the end of "Night in Tunisia." Seeing the performance of "Moaning" was like watching history. Art and his Messenger's were swingin' hard!
Next up is Buddy Rich, Thelonius, Ella and then the rest. I am buying them all and urge you to do the same.
Moanin on Blue Note was Blakey classic release and to now after 50 years I get to see the band that started my interest in Jazz
Lee Morgan,Benny Golson etc LIVE and UnRelease until now
This is jazz history at its best
