Jazz Messengers

23 September 2002

Two giants come together to demonstrate the dramatic changes that were happening to jazz at the end of the 1950s. The message here was labelled ‘hard Bop’, incorporating the qualities of blues and gospel to reinvigorate jazz by its roots. Recorded in 1957, this also features Johnny Griffin, Bill Hardman and Spanky DeBrest. The reissue features three bonus tracks.
