Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers featured an ever changing lineup, allowing Blakey to consistently collaborate with the young, up and coming jazz talent of the time. Moanin’, a seminal album for the hard bop style of jazz, features a perfect combination of personnel and inspired compositions, covering soul, blues, Latin-American, and traditional moods. The driving rhythm section of Blakey on drums, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Bobby Timmons on piano contribute to the aggressive hard bop sound, while Lee Morgan and Benny Golson serve as strong melodic leads, being the only horns in the band.
