Synopsis

Album Description
This album by one of the best editions of the Jazz Messengers with Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merritt was recorded at the same August 1960 sessions that produced "A Night In Tunisia". The title tune was a regular feature in the band's live sets, but the real gems here are Lee Morgan's "Johnny Blue" and three obscure, but marvelous Wayne Shorter tunes. An alternate take of "Sleeping Dancer Dance On" has been added to the original album. * bonus track, not part of the original LP. Recorded on August 7 (#3,4,6) & August 14 (#1, 2, 5), 1960 at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey LEE MORGAN, trumpet; WAYNE SHORTER, tenor sax: BOBBY TIMMONS, piano; JYMIE MERRITT, bass; ART BLAKEY, drums

CD Reviews

Falling in "Love" Again
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 03/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This most recent batch of RVG reissues (2/15 & 3/1/05) features some long neglected Blue Note titles, none rarer than this one, which has been out-of-print as a single disc for nearly 15 years. Of the half-dozen albums that this edition of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (Art, Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merritt) recorded in 1960 and early 1961, the sessions from August 7 & 14, which yielded "A Night in Tunisia" (see my review) and "Like Someone in Love," are the finest. Indeed, enough material was recorded over those two dates for two LPs, and while "Tunisia" is generally considered the masterpiece, the selections assigned to "Like Someone in Love" deserve more recognition. In particular, the title track, a beautiful standard frequently featured in the Messenger live repertoire, and Wayne Shorter's "Sleeping Dancer Sleep On," which is one of the truly great Messenger tunes. The other three songs -- Lee Morgan's "Johnny's Blue" and the Shorter penned "Noise in the Attic" and "Giantis" -- further show the burgeoning writing talents of Art's frontline players, who later in the decade would be recognized as two of that generation's most gifted jazz composers. Any Messenger fan who did not get "Like Someone in Love" in its original CD incarnation or via the now OOP Mosaic Set, would be remiss not to fall in "Love" now."
Blakey's most stunning album...
Aaron | 04/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Art Blakey recorded many fine jazz sessions in the 50's and 60's for bluenote, but this 1960 set, from an lp "Like Someone in Love" is one of hin most stunning sets ever. It is pretty much a mello set, but it swings and shows off Blaky's impeccable timing, and his leadeship skills, the players are awesome, the songs are unique and the solos exellent. This is one fine jazz album."
An incredible Album??

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is hard to believe no one made a critic of this lonely work of art? This is an exceptional piece where Lee Morgan?s trumpet perfectly blends with Wayne Shorter?s sax?Bobby, Timmons is incredible?Especially in ?Johnny?s blue??It?s definitely on my top 20 list of jazz masterpieces."
