Art Of Blakey By The Brian Claxton Quintet

Nov 2, 2018 - Nov 30, 2018


Art Blakey was among the most influential and dynamic musicians in jazz history. After starting on piano, a Pittsburg club owner forced him onto the drums, and the musical world has never been the same. With a career that spanned over forty-eight years, Blakey provided the rhythmic canvas for jazz music's greatest artists. As a band leader, Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers changed the sonic landscape of music, and specifically jazz forever, and became a breeding ground for the finest up and coming musicians and composers that have solidified the sound of jazz music today.
