To celebrate the 45th anniversary of iconic Dutch jazz label Timeless Records, Music On Vinyl is releasing a series that features albums that are part of the Timeless Records legacy and will be released mainly throughout 2022.
The Jazz Messengers were a jazz combo that was founded by Art Blakey, together with Horace Silver. Soon after its founding, the Jazz Messengers became known as an incubator for young talent. Bandleader Art Blakey led the collective for over 35 years. The 1978 formation has been described by critics as one of Blakey's strongest groups in years, featuring trumpeter Valery Ponomarev, Robert Watson (also known as Bobby Watson) on alto saxophone, David Schnitter on tenor saxophone, Dennis Irwin on bass and James Williams on piano. With this formation, he recorded the album Reflections in Blue in 1978 in the Netherlands and released the year after on Timeless Records.
Reflections in Blue is available as a limited edition of 2,000 individually numbered copies on translucent blue colored vinyl.
