“The Jazz Messengers might seem in retrospect like something of an institution, but listening to them fresh is always an ear-opening experience. Moanin’ is the best introduction to their work.” PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“Because of the themes played in unison by Benny Golson and Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons’ “churchy” piano, Jymie Merritt’s feline bass lines, and Art Blakey’s drums, sounding as big as a whole orchestra and showcasing the constant swing of his cymbals, this is, more than the sound of a great group, the true essence of the golden era of jazz.” JAZZ MAGAZINE
