Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers: At the Café Bohemia
Blue Note 1507/1508, Recorded on November 23, 1955

I already shared this several times but I don’t mind. I hope you don’t mind, too. These recordings simply have this fetching 50’s jazz club atmosphere. Oh, because it is fetching music and from the 50’s and captured live from one of New York’s most legendary jazz clubs… No surprise therefore. Bop is truly alive all over the two vinyls. Irrespective if Bebop or Hard Bop, both meet here perfectly thanks to a personnel of brilliant soloists and a rhythm group that is grooving hard and at the same time loose and smooth. Overall The Jazz Messengers are here (like on the most records) an assembling of future legends making moving and energetic music at it’s best!
