Name:Message From Art - For Art Blakey
Cat No.:FSY-514

Release Date:06/16/2012
Description:Legendary drummer Joe La Barbera has forged a strong connection with the Japanese independent label Five Stars Records, appearing on several CDs featuring fellow American pianist Bill Mays and others. His previous release (The Little Drummer Boy) was a very special project he co-led with his older brother and brilliant sax player, Pat La Barbera.

In this follow-up to that successful album, Message From Art - For Art Blakey, Joe went into the studio again with his brother, plus two other great musicians -- Don Thompson on piano and Tom Warrington on bass. In this very attractive and lively, straight-ahead album, Joe La Barbera and company pay tribute to Art Blakey, one of the greatest jazz drummers ever lived, playing standards and jazz musicians' compositions, plus Joe's original composition dedicated to Blakey.

Recorded at Landmark Studio in Yokohama, Japan, the sound quality is first-rate, not to mention the inspired performance by these master musicians. This is a very enjoyable, swinging CD perfect for fans of straight-ahead jazz, and easily one of the best albums of 2012! Strongly recommended!

Recorded at Landmark Studio in Yokoyama, Japan, on December 19, 2011.
