Brilliant version of the title track. Live. Thunderous. Classic Blue Note.
Banging, key Messengers. Blakey is a polyrhythmic blaze; Shorter is vicious. Hubbard bows out of the line-up with a passionate tribute to the Congress of Racial Equality.
Stupendous early-sixties date with Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons and Lee Morgan, on fire with political fury. From a string of ‘Blue Notes for a blue note’ out recently (and no doubt briefly).
From 1961 — with Wayne Shorter, Jymie Merritt, Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons. Kicks off with a composition by Curtis Fuller, guesting here on his way into the Messengers lineup proper.
Late sixties, with Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller and Freddie Hubbard up front.
Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, Jamie Merritt; live in Tokyo.
