An Art Blakey Playlist

On August 27, 2018

Every month, we update our Vinyl Me, Please Classics Playlist with selections inspired by this month's Classics Record of the Month. In September, Classics members will receive The Freedom Rider, the 1964 album from Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, one of the most influential jazz bands of all time. Listen above for a playlist of choice cuts from the band's classic albums. Learn more about Vinyl Me, Please Classics here.
