April 6, Today we turn our attention to drummer and band leader Art Blakey. Blakey was one of the most powerful and gregarious drummers in jazz, and not many can match his sheer exuberance and communication.
In that almost 40 year span, almost every great young jazz musician went through the band. Blakey would hire the best young cats he could find, make them all compose for the band, teach them all he could, and then kick them out to become their own leaders, only to start the process over again.
Over the years The Jazz Messengers amassed a huge amount of original compositions, and each new member of the band was supposed to know them all. He told me the story of when he got the call from Blakey. After the gig, Blakey took him aside and told him that better not happen again.
Hard bop was an extension of be bop, which we talked about early, that was more muscular and bluesy. Incidentally, one of my favorite moments in recorded jazz happens on this recording. This was not planned out. But Golson was listening to what Morgan was playing and answered him, just like in a conversation.
Brilliant stuff! He describes his first time on the bandstand with Art at the drums and how incredibly powerful he was. Jason Parker is a Seattle-based jazz trumpet player, educator and writer. Share on facebook.
