Limited Edition Remastered 180g Pure Virgin Audiophile Vinyl Import LP!

Originally recorded in 1961, Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers' Roots & Herbs was first released in 1970. Having already been a magnet for such talented hard bop players and writers as Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Clifford Brown, Horace Silver (who helped form the original group), and Kenny Dorham, the Messengers' lineup of 1961 featured one of Blakey's best rosters: In addition to trumpeter Lee Morgan, who would alternate in the early '60s with Freddie Hubbard, the band featured tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianists Walter Davis, Jr. and Bobby Timmons, and bassist Jymie Merritt.

"Feeding off six early compositions by Shorter, all the players reel off top-notch solos atop Blakey's fluidly galvanizing swing beat." - Stephen Cook, All Music Guide, 5 stars
