Lesser-Known 1963 Album On Vinyl LP!
Songs From the Broadway Musical Golden Boy!

Originally released on Colpix Records in 1963, this striking release consists of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers performing selected music from the Broadway musical Golden Boy. Arranged by three master musicians, Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller and Cedar Walton, the music is performed by an amazing all-star lineup featuring Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan (trumpet), Curtis Fuller (trombone), Julius Watkins (French horn), Bill Barber (tuba), James Spaulding (alto sax), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Charles Davis (baritone sax), Cedar Walton (piano), Reggie Workman (bass), and of course Blakey "the Boss" on drums.

A somewhat obscure Blakey release, Golden Boy nonetheless features plenty of improvisatory, hard bop firepower.
