This release contains the complete original album "Moanin´", which 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. As a bonus, we have added four extended tunes recorded immediately afterwards in Paris, two of which ("Are You Real" &" Moanin") are versions of songs from the studio album.
