Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: Just Coolin'
One of the wonders of Jazz music after a hundred years or so of recordings is that everything old is new again. Such is the case with the NEW Blue Note release from Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Just Coolin'. This session was recorded in Spring of 1959 by the late great Rudy Van Gelder and features Drummer and Bandleader Blakey's classic group including Lee Morgan on trumpet, Hank Mobley on saxophone, Bobby Timmons on keys and Bassist Jymie Merritt. Jazz 91.9 WCLK is playing it on Sundays and on the HD2 stream. I'll play the previously unissued cut Quick Trick around midnight on Sunday during Mainstream And Modern(Sundays 9pm-Midnight). You can hear it right now or purchase a download of the six song set from Blue Note at the link below. We love new music from 1959 on listener supported WCLK.
