By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on July 7, 2000
Format: Audio CD
"Three Blind Mice Volume 1" (and 2 for that matter) were originally live recordings made for the United Artists label. They were made in March '62 on the heels of the magnificent Blue Notes "Mosaic" and "Buhaina's Delight," and with the same personnel. If you love those two albums mentioned above, then this is more of the same cup of tea. Some of the music we've heard before -- "Plexis" was on Freddie Hubbard's "Hub Cap" and "Children of the Night" was on "Mosaic" -- but this band could breath fresh life into anything. Speaking of which, only the Jazz Messengers could make "Three Blind Mice" swing and at the same time make it into a creative arrangement for a three horn frontline. Great stuff from a great time.

{Arthur 'Art' Blakey(October 11 1919-1990)}

Over a period of four decades Art Blakey provided a virtual institution for young and talented musicians coming up the ranks.The Jazz Messengers were born when Art Blakey and his 'kindred spirit' Horace Silver formed a band in 1953.By 1956 Silver left to form his own unit and the leadership of this important band passed to Blakey.From 1961 the group featured Wayne Shorter(tenor sax),Lee Morgan(trumpet),Bobby Timmons(piano),Jymie Merritt(bass),and Art Blakey(drums).In 1962 Curtis Fuller (trombone)was added as a third horn on the front line,and Freddie Hubbard(trumpet)replaced Lee Morgan(trumpet,and Cedar Walton(piano)replaced Bobby Timmons(piano).
This live recording at the Rennaissance is one of the best this group ever performed.

The wonderful American poet Billy Collins, in "I Chop Some Parsley While Listening to Art Blakey's Version of 'Three Blind Mice'",is brought to tears by Freddie Hubbard's "mournful trumpet" on what he rightly describes as the "next cut", which is "Blue Moon". You will be too. Collins often alludes to jazz in his poetry, and clearly says more about the music than I could. (Collins's poem can be found in the volume Sailing Alone Around the Room.)
