Blakey's most successful LP gave listeners Bobby Timmons' "Moanin'" and Benny Golson's "Along Came Betty" and "Blues March" - tunes so powerful that Blakey played them almost every night for the next 30 years! This beautifully performed and recorded session made the Jazz Messengers a jazz institution; this re-release includes 1 bonus track. Part of Blue Note's Rudy Van Gelder series of newly digitally remastered masterpieces featuring 24-bit technology and deluxe packaging.
