Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers – No Problem

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“No Problem” (Duke Jordan).

From “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” original soundtrack, 1960.

An interesting set of music originally recorded as the soundtrack for the French film Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the majority of these tracks feature Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers of mid-1959 with trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenorman Barney Wilen, pianist Boby Timmons and bassist Jymie Merritt joining the explosive drummer/leader. In general, the music manages to stand on its own with the ensemble getting to stretch out a bit on the rare material (AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow).
