Art Blakey — Blowin’ the Blues Away 1945

SKF NOTE: I do not own the copyright to this track and I will gladly remove it. This is track 1, Side 1, of a vinyl LP I bought called Billy Eckstine Orchestra 1945. The graphic here is from the album cover. I dubbed my LP onto a high quality cassette years ago and digitized that cassette just days ago.

This track is the first time I heard Art Blakey with a big band — and to borrow a phrase from the song title, I was blown away. Nothing here is ultra-slick, but to my ears, Blakey is playing perfect.
