Seven years after drummer Art Blakey's death, a Jazz Messengers reunion group was formed for a tour and this recording. Led by tenor saxophonist Benny Golson (who acts as the band's musical director), the sextet also includes trumpeter Terence Blanchard, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist Geoff Keezer, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Lewis Nash (in Blakey's spot). Together they perform Wayne Shorter's "One By One," and Cedar Walton's "Plexus," and compositions by Blanchard and Fuller, plus a pair (including "Blues March") by Golson
Five former members of The Jazz Messengers plus drummer Lewis Nash make up this Art Blakey Legacy Band that has toured the . recently and paid homage to the legendary teacher and leader. Coincidentally, 69-year-old Benny Golson, who leads the Legacy Band, represents the older generation of Blakey alumni, while 27-year-old Geoff Keezer represents the younger members.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). And so it is with this album. Benny Golson plays tenor and serves as musical director for this most swinging and electrifying live performance, with Terence Blanchard on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Geoff Keezer on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums. This group really comes together to swing in true Blakey-esque fashion. This is a recording that not only makes you take notice upon a first listening, but also gets better with each subsequent playing. Golson's lilting playing is thoughtful and strong, while Blanchard has never sounded better.
