Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers was one of the most important and influential ensembles in modern jazz history — widely credited with ushering the music into the modern era, and pioneering the bebop and hard bop sounds that still dominate today’s scene. The Jazz Message is an all-star tribute group that continues in the same spirit, featuring six former Jazz Messengers, plus master drummer Lewis Nash, performing familiar favorites from the Blakey songbook.
