Jazz's sometimes counter-productive macho ethic was epitomized by the Messengers, yet the music didn't suffer. This late version of the band was of a very high quality.
Art Blakey - drums Terence Blanchard - trumpet Donald Harrison - alto saxophone Jean Toussaint - tenor saxophone Tim Williams - trombone Mulgrew Miller - piano Lonnie Plaxico - bass. Proof positive that Blakey never stopped cooking. Live features the drummer at the peak of his powers, kicking a band of upstarts in the rear and making them rise to levels of passionate creativity they might never again attain. Take altoist Donald Harrison, for instance, who in my opinion has never sounded as inspired as he did with the Messengers. The same can probably be said for dozens of young men who passed.

The Jazz Messengers were an influential jazz combo that existed for over thirty-five years beginning in the early 1950s as a collective, and ending when long-time leader and founding drummer Art Blakey died in 1990. Blakey led or co-led the group from the outset. Art Blakey" and "Jazz Messengers" became synonymous over the years, though Blakey did lead non-Messenger recording sessions and played as a sideman for other groups throughout his career.
