ART BLAKEY & THE AFRO DRUM ENSEMBLE - THE AFRICAN BEAT



Five in a row from the mighty Blue Note Lable !
A slammin' LP of "jazz meets percussion", hosted by the great Art Blakey, and featuring jazz players like Curtis Fuller, Yusef Lateef, and Ahmed Abdul-Malik plus a host of percussionists that include Solomon Ilori, Montego Joe, Chief Bey, and Garvin Masseaux. Blakey skirts nicely between the two camps, and although the record probably has more of an Afro-percussion feel than a jazz one, Lateef and Fuller blow through the mix with some nice nice solos.Blakey on top form as always and on a par with Holiday for Skins and Orgy in Rhythm.

thesuperimposers said...

okay my mistake, i got OIR1, so no worries. I thouht the cover to OIR2 was red? Dont panic. What else you got? m

fleetmouse said...

Hi Bacoso - also the Elvin Jones - Coalition is WMA. But you might as well leave it as is instead of transcoding wma to mp3 which reduces the sound quality even further. Unless you have the raw wave files still lying around on your HD...?

Cheers and thanks for the great music.
