Release Date:02/24/2015;Notes:Art Blakey was one of the greatest of all jazz drummers, a masterful talent scout and the inspiring leader of the Jazz Messengers. For 35 years (1955 to 1990), the Jazz Messengers featured brilliant young talent who were pushed by Blakey to write new music and play at their very best. One certainly could not coast with Blakeys explosive drumming constantly egging on the players. The who's who of jazz passed through Blakeys band for several generations, with everyone from Freddie Hubbard and Wynton Marsalis to Benny Golson and Horace Silver benefiting from the hard swinging experience. But few lineups could compete with the 1960 edition of the Jazz Messengers featured on The Big Beat. Blakey, the old man of the band at 30, is joined by bassist Jymie Merritt and three brilliant stylists who were not only exciting soloists but very skilled songwriters trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter and pianist Bobby Timmons. The Big Beat introduces Timmons Dat Dere (which practically defines soul jazz) and Shorters Lester Left Town (a tribute to Lester Young) and includes an inventive version of It's Only A Paper Moon along with a few other lesser known but colorful pieces. This is hard bop at it's finest from one of the most immortal jazz groups of all time.;Track List:1. The Chess Players;2. Sakeena's Vision;3. Politely;4. Dat Dere;5. Lester Left Town;6. It's Only A Paper Moon;7. It's Only A Paper Moon (Alternate Take);Special Attributes:GATEFOLD LP JACKET, 180 GRAM VINYL
