Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers, Ugetsu
2001 | Label: Fantasy / Riverside

Art Blakey was not only the most energetic drummer in jazz but also its keenest impresario, recruiting more young sidemen who became stars than any other bandleader. The Jazz Messengers who played on Ugetsu (Freddie Hubbard, trumpet; Wayne Shorter, tenor sax; Curtis Fuller, trombone; Cedar Walton, piano; Reggie Workman, bass) may have been the most brilliant incarnation of all, and this album — recorded at Birdland in June, 1963, two years into… read more »

They Say All Music Guide

Art Blakey’s 1963 Jazz Messengers (which included trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist Cedar Walton and bassist Reggie Workman in addition to the drummer-leader) was one of his finest. The CD reissue (which adds two songs to the seven on the original LP) has plenty of strong moments, particularly on “Ping-Pong,” Shorter’s feature (“I Didn’t Know What Time It Was”) and the memorable “One by One.” This high-quality hard bop session is recommended. [Ugetsu was reissued in 2006 and includes bonus tracks.] – Scott Yanow
