a real delight,
This review is from: Buhaina's Delight (Audio CD)
Art Blakey was like a holy guru to aspirant young jazz musicians, taking generations of young jazz talents through the ins and outs of jazz music with his various incarnations of The Jazz Messengers. Getting the chance to play with Blakey was like a young boxer getting the chance to train under Mohammed Ali in his prime. You knew you were going places when Blakey was leader.
The title track, shortened to "Bu's Delight", has some shuffling Blakey drum solos from about 3:25 onward. "Reincarnation Blues" is a fantastic cooperative effort with each performer contributing, Wayne Shorter standing out especially. This reissue is part of the Blue Note Rudy Van Gelder Edition series, so it has been digitally remastered at 24-bits at high resolution by Van Gelder himself. Be sure not to miss out on this title and grab it during your next purchase here at Amazon! You'll thank me.
