Art Blakey Blues March !!BETTER!!

The composition is in 4/4 time.[3]It was influenced by New Orleans marching bands, and "starts in long meter form and transforms back into regular time."[4] Its straightforward harmony and separate sections make it ideal for improvisation.[4] In the view of Leonard Feather, "the theme, with its slight bugle-call orientation, has a period quality that ties the work together".[3]

Art Blakey Blues March


Blues MarchArtist: The JazztetBenny Golson - Jazz Lines PublicationsPublisher Desc. Although the Jazztet was formed in 1959, trumpeter Art Farmer and tenor saxophonist Benny Golson had been interested in forming a band with each other for several years prior. Although the group saw frequent personnel shifts, the distinct musical personalities of its leaders gave their performances a sound unlike any other group in jazz at the time. Golson's brilliant arrangements were able to craft the auditory illusion of a much larger ensemble than the band's actual three horn frontline. Farmer's warm, glowing trumpet served as the perfect lead voice for these arrangements, both during ensemble passages and as a soloist.The Jazztet recorded six albums during its initial three year run (Farmer, Golson and original trombonist Curtis Fuller would reunite on and off under the Jazztet name in the 1980s and 90s). Despite covering an impressively diverse amount of musical territories (including a collaboration with Modern Jazz Quartet mastermind John Lewis), their 1960 debut album "Meet the Jazztet" has continued to remain their most endearing contribution. In addition to Farmer, Golson and Fuller, the recording featured a 19 year old McCoy Tyner on piano, Farmer's twin brother Addison on bass, and Lex Humphries on drums.Initially recorded by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, "Blues March" is a wonderful re-thinking of the standard 12 bar blues form, both harmonically and rhythmically.While the Jazztet may have had inconspicuous beginnings, their legacy as one of the finest bands of the hard bop era continues to stand tall to this day. Between Farmer's trumpet, Golson's arrangements, and the consistently high quality of the other sidemen, it's not hard to see why.Select a ProductPreviewMy LibraryDescriptionNumberLevelPriceQtyCurrently ViewingJazz Ensemble #11355304 Publisher ID: JLP-779411355304MMedium$35.00QuantityAdd to Music ListTESTING Continue ShoppingMy LibrarySelect ProductJazz Ensemble #11355304Add to My LibraryWhat is My Library?Customers Also Bought.also-cover-mini float: left; width: 100%; margin-bottom: 8px;text-align: left; height: 225px; overflow: hidden !important; position: relative;.also-cover-mini height: 200px;.also-cover img padding: 3px; position: absolute; top: 50%; -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%); -ms-transform: translateY(-50%); transform: translateY(-50%); max-height: 225px;$(function() //block crawlers cmf 12/27/21 if (validateBrowser()) $.ajax(type: "POST",url: "/sheet-music/product-search",data: option: "also-bought",product_id: "11355304",,success: function(data)for(var i=0; i " +product.title+ " " +product.composer+ ""); if (i > 0)$("#also-header").show(); ););Trustpilot Order Extra PartsOver 145 Years of Service

Art Blakey was a pivotal character on the fifties rhythm scene. Along with Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, he was one of the great figures, not only of percussion, but also of the hard bop style which followed Charlie Parker's be-bop. He gave it new harmonic and rhythmic elements. Skilled in polyrhythm mixing influences from Africa, Cuba and Brazil, from bop, gospel and blues in a powerful, colourful and hugely expressive playing style, he rapidly became an essential figure in the jazz world.

Also among the artists performing at this fund raising event is Judy Bady, a vocalist whose musical repertoire spans the breadth of jazz, blues, gospel, and contemporary American pop. A true "up and coming star," Bady has performed at such notable venues as the JVC Jazz Festival at Waterloo Village, New York City's famed Blue Note jazz club, and the Newport Jazz Festival. 041b061a72
