[ART BLAKEY TRIBUTE] A list of the dozens of distinguished alumni who emerged from drum master and bandleader Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers would include a high percentage of the greatest names in the music’s history—Shorter, Silver, Jarrett, Golson, Garett, Mobley, Brown, Hubbard, Marsalis, Eubanks—and fill this page. So would the list of jazz classics generated by Blakey’s celebrated, ever-evolving finishing school of jazz from the early 1950s through the late ’80s. We’re unlikely to experience a finer collection of erstwhile Messengers than this glittering group of latter-day jazz stars, all of whom developed their skills under the master’s sharp eye and subsequently created superb music on their own; they’ll be delivering some of that all-star ensemble’s greatest messages, enhanced by everything they’ve since learned.
