Remastered from the original Rudy Van Gelder Blue Note master tapes!

Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor saxophone, Doug Watkins on bass and Art Blakey on drums are the Jazz Messengers supporting Horace Silver playing piano on tunes like "Creepin' In," "To Whom it May Concern" and "Doodlin" to name three of seven tunes written by Silver for this, the first Jazz Messengers sessions recorded by Rudy Van Gelder. This is the seminal album, originally released in 1955, that gave birth to the Blue Note sound, to Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers and to the Horace Silver Quintet. Shifting be-bop into an earthier, more blues-gospel orbit connected with audiences and forged the direction that hard bop would take for years to come!

This is a great sounding record. If you love hard bop this is a must own. The mastering job is superb and the pressing is flat and quiet. Worth every penny. It's amazing that this was originally recorded in 1954 and sounds better than most modern recordings of today. Analog will never die!
