Album Notes
Full performer name: Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers.Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: Art Blakey (drums); Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone); Lee Morgan (trumpet); Bobby Timmons (piano); Jymie Merritt (bass).Producer: Alfred Lion.Reissue producer: Michael Cuscuna.Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on March 14, 1961. Originally released on Blue Note (84258). Includes liner notes by Nat Hentoff.Digitally remastered using 24-bit technology by Ron McMaster.Personnel: Art Blakey (drums, snare drum); Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone); Lee Morgan (trumpet); Bobby Timmons (piano).Recording information: New York, NY (03/14/1961); Van Gelder Stuido, Englewood Cl (03/14/1961).This 1961 session is less well known than many of the other Jazz Messengers' Blue Note dates from the same period. THE WICTH DOCTOR is, however, a strong outing by the legendary group in its most prolific period. Featuring the classic lineup of Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, and Jymie Merritt, Blakey and his Messengers groove hard on cuts like Morgan's title track and the rhythmic "Afrique." Shorter and Morgan make a grand team as always on tasty arrangements like Shorter's "Those Who Sit and Wait," working together on the melody and then blowing tremendously powerful solos. Blakey is in his prime, spurring on his younger charges with burning grooves and rhythmic waves that would crush weaker men. His intricate patterns on the aptly titled "A Little Busy" provide only a small clue of his overall drumming brilliance. Other worthwhile cuts include Shorter's pulsating "Joelle" and the blistering screamer "Lost and Found."
