Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – The Egyptian 1964

February 21, 2016

The fierce opening track from Blakey’s last album for Blue Note Records – ‘Indestructible’. Recorded in New Jersey by arguably the most influential jazz recording engineer of all time – Rudy Van Gelder – this shows drummer Blakey and his 1964 Messengers absolutely firing out solo and response.

Art Blakey (drums); Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone); Lee Morgan (trumpet); Curtis Fuller (trombone); Cedar Walton (piano); Reggie Workman (bass).

  1. Teo Macero? 😉

    (Great track!)

    • Yes, Macero is definitely another contender as record producer for Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck and others. Van Gelder was synonymous with Blue Note while Macero did most of his work with Columbia.
