Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers "Roots & Herbs" [All Analog 180g Reissue Vinyl][Blue Note Tone Poet Series]

Label: Blue Note 1970 (Recorded in 1961)

Format: Vinyl LP

Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Modal

Recorded in 1961 but it took a decade for this incredible record to be released. Features a young Wayne Shorter who composed every song as well. Lee Morgan is in top form as usual and the whole set is full of Art Blakey's legendary leadership and soul. There are so many Art Blakey records now in print this might be one to gloss over - don't. It's the Jazz Messengers at the top of their game from the heart of the Bop era! 

Amazing music, incredible sound, and wonderful packaging! At a fair price!

The Blue Note Tone Poet Series is putting the legendary Blue Note catalog back in print in wonderful quality. We will continue to try and stock them at the lowest price possible.
