Sowing Records presents a reissue of Blakey In Paris by Art Blakey featuring Bud Powell and Lee Morgan, originally released in 1961. This is Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers, with guests Bud Powell (piano) and Barney Wilen (alto sax), caught live at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris in 1959. At that time, Blakey's Messengers were no less than Lee Morgan (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Walter Davis Jr. (piano), and Jymie Merritt (bass). In other words, one of the greatest hard bop combos ever, a pool of great young individuals under the direction of one of the most influential drummers and band leaders in the history of jazz. This "Paris Jam Session" is regarded as an essential release in Blakey's extensive discography.
