Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

If you like cool jazz, that’s cool. I’m thinking of Miles Davis, cool.

Art Blakey is cool, but not that kind of cool. He’s just plain cool. But the music isn’t cool jazz, it’s kick-butt jazz. Be warned, listen to enough of this and you’ll be rattled. But in a good way.

This collection called The History Of Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers came from The Grande Bibliotheque. I found it there about 4 years ago.
