THE MONO VERSION APPEARS HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD!!!

Moanin’, presented here in both its Stereo and Mono versions, is widely regarded as one of the finest albums in the history of Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. It was the first LP by the third formation of the group, featuring Lee Morgan, Benny Golson (composer of most of the songs), Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merritt. The Mono version appears here on CD for the first time ever. As a bonus, we have added the only two known alternate takes from the session, as well as four extended tunes recorded immediately afterwards in Paris, two of which (“Are You Real?” and “Moanin’”) are versions of songs from the studio album.

ART BLAKEY, drums & leader
LEE MORGAN, trumpet
BENNY GOLSON, tenor sax
