"This radiant 1964 session comes off sounding like an exhilarating late night show at the Village Vanguard."
- Dan Ouellette

The Jazz Messengers was an ever-changing group of young musicians assembled by Art Blakey to both inspire and mentor young jazz players, as well as to keep Blakey fresh and full of new ideas. The group served as a training ground for future stars such as Wynton Marsalis and Hank Mobley. This album features Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller, Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton and Reginald Workman at the very beginning of their musical careers.

"I’m gonna stay with the youngsters. When these get too old I’ll get some younger ones. Keeps the mind active.”
- Art Blakey

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
