Nice! My band does this one, but more or less directly based on the Taj Mahal version (I think I might have shared it in the videos section? EDIT: I checked and I did, but back in June last year! The time runs together!)
Last time I made a playlist of all/most of the stuff Lee Morgan played on together. Higgins was on the plurality of that, but Blakey, Dejohnette and Tony Williams were also represented.
This time it's a playlist of all the albums (all the ones available on Spotify) that Lee Morgan played on as a member of The Jazz Messengers.
Blakey is on all of this, but thanks to "Drums Around The Corner" Roy Haynes, Philly Joe, and Ray Barretto are also represented.
I really like this track, a modal piece by Curtis Fuller (the double length bridge has a lot of built in breaks for Blakey - Brakeys?)
The studio cut:
And a live version (without Fuller) there are some weird hiccups in the video but also some great closeups of Blakey.
A Snarky Puppy rabbit hole on YouTube led me to this - the album "What Heat" is fantastic. I just ordered the record (vinyl) from Real World.
Michael League is the common thread between SP and Bokante
