Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers — In My Prime (RSD 2-LP)
Indie Exclusive Double 180-Gram Vinyl Album
Jazz drummer and bandleader Art Blakey (1919-1990) made a name for himself in the 1940s & 1950s playing with contemporaries like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. His collaborations were numerous and include working with legendary artists such as Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Chet Baker, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and countless others. His signature polyrhythmic style exuded power and originality, creating a dark cymbal sound punctuated by frequent loud snare and bass drum accents in triplets or cross-rhythms. On In My Prime, you’ll find the eight sublime tracks recorded by renowned engineer Elvin Campbell at the CI Recording Studios (New York) in December 1977.
