Moanin' (Laserlight)

Moanin' (Laserlight) by Art Blakey
Released: Jan 1958
Label: LRC Ltd. / Groove Merchant Records
Drummer Art Blakey was Blue Note's finest band leader -- he discovered and nurtured talent his entire career. How good was Blakey's ear? This set includes such future stars as Lee Morgan, Benny Golsen (who wrote most of the LPs numbers), and Bobby Timmons. Moanin' is one of Blakey's most successful albums thanks to Timmons' title track and Golsen's "Along Came Betty," both of which instantly became jazz standards. A definitive hard bop album. Perhaps, "the" definitive one.
