2015 EU reissue on 180g vinyl LP- Different formations of the Jazz Messengers had been around since the late ’40s. However, it was arguably the line-up of their self-titled 1956 album that first captured the public’s ears and imagination; a line-up led by pianist Horace Silver and featuring drummer Art Blakey, saxophonist Hank Mobley, trumpeter Donald Byrd and bassist Doug Watkins. The Jazz Messengers includes many hard-bop standards, including Silver’s oft-covered “Ecaroh” and “Nica’s Dream,” plus a top-class take on “The End of a Love Affair.” Despite the group’s cohesion on the record, Silver left the band shortly after its release and took Watkins, Byrd and Mobley with him to start a new quintet with a different drummer. Blakey took over as “head” Jazz Messenger and over the years, he would also be known as a jazz ambassador by introducing many jazz greats to a wider audience through his incindiary band’s constantly changing formation for many decades, right up to his death in 1990.
