Art Blakey: Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers: Moanin'

After a break of over a year, Blakey wanted to explore with a new crop of musicians, and started fresh with a quintet made up of Philadelphia natives: trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, pianist Bobby Timmons, and bassist Jymie Merritt. Not for nothing did Art Blakey select the term Messengers to denote his musical and personal purpose at the onset of his bandleading career. Manifestly all meaningful music carries its own built-in message, and to this extent the term could reasonably be applied to any combination of performers. What is more important in Blakey's case is that his message is transmitted not merely in his music but in his words and speeches, his actions and personality. This characteristic of Blakey has been increasingly evident during the eventful years since he gave up his job as a sideman. He has made it clear that he will never be content merely with the knowledge that his musical message is correctly construed, its rhythmic syntax and melodic grammar unimpeachable. This is merely the starting point for Blakey, once equipped to deliver his message he is determined to find an audience for it, and for all of jazz.

ART BLAKEY & THE JAZZ MESSENGERS “MOANIN'”

Moanin ' is a jazz album by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers recorded in for the Blue Note label and released in This was Blakey's first album for Blue Note in several years, after a period of recording for a number of different labels, and marked both a homecoming and a fresh start. Originally the LP was self-titled, but the instant popularity of the bluesy opening track " Moanin' " by pianist Bobby Timmons led to its becoming known by that title. The rest of the originals are by saxophonist Benny Golson who was not with the Jazz Messengers for long, this being the only American album on which he is featured. Of the originals on the album, all but the "Drum Thunder Suite" became staples of the Messengers book, even after Timmons and Golson were gone. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in his meticulous Hackensack studios, this recording reflects the hallmark precision associated with that engineer — on the CD reissue there is a brief conversation between Lee Morgan and Rudy Van Gelder going over Morgan's solo.

'Moanin' Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Moanin' includes some of the greatest music Blakey produced in the studio with arguably his very best band. There are three tracks that are immortal and will always stand the test of time. The title selection is a pure tuneful melody stewed in a bluesy shuffle penned by pianist Bobby Timmons , while tenor saxophonist Benny Golson 's classy, slowed "Along Came Betty" and the static, militaristic "Blues March" will always have a home in the repertoire of every student or professional jazz band. Certainly a complete and wholly satisfying album, Moanin' ranks with the very best of Blakey and what modern jazz offered in the late '50s and beyond.
