Art Blakey with his Jazz Messengers had an amazing career. Anyone who was anybody played with Blakey during the golden era of the art form.
He showcased and featured fresh talent who were on the way up.
How many albums did Art record? If you counted one per day each day consecutively you'd still be counting for several months!
Thirteen years before he passed in 1990, I was lucky enough to sit down and talk with him at radio station WUSS AM in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Enjoy!
