Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk[LP]
Blakey’s 1958 band (featuring Johnny Griffin on tenor sax and Bill Hardman on trumpet) conspire with Monk himself to create an album full of utterly unique interpretations of the piano genius’s compositions. One of Griffin’s own, "Purple Shades," joins a hard-swinging rendition of "Evidence," a bouncy, boppin’ "In Walked Bud," a sultry "Blue Monk," the driving "Rhythm-A-Ning" and more. Mastered and cut from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio; 180-gram vinyl housed in an old-style tip-on jacket! Analog Sparks.
