"First class performances from Blakey's golden era make this CD a great way to start to learn what he and The Jazz Messengers were all about. In adittion to discovering and nurturing many young musicians, Blakey's band was highly influential in its version of hard-bop jazz.
As you probably know, Wynton Marsalis was one of his later alumni and through his influence the spirit of Blakey's music spread to younger musicians. But, later developments aside, this CD is enoyable by its own merrits."
