Art Blakey and the Jazz Warriors
Since today would have been Art Blakey's 98th birthday I thought it
would be appropriate to post this documentary featuring Bu and the Jazz Messengers featured along with a troupe of British Jazz dancers, The Jazz Warriors:
Personally this documentary was an important resource for me during my teens, one of my first introductions to the music of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, thanks to the diverse Jazz audio and visual collection at the Regina Public Library circa. 1994.
*Please check out my new Four on the Floor Instagram page:
I will be posting here every day (hopefully...) but only the videos will be linked and show up here, on my regular blog page.
Check back often for photos of my favourite Jazz drummers, short 1 min. instructional videos and various other "Easter eggs".
Thanks again for your support and all the gloriousness that modern social media currently affords us*
