About

The Message consists mostly of former Jazz Messengers, the banner under which Art Blakey organized some of the most iconic bands in jazz history. The band’s focus is arrangements of Jazz Messenger pieces composed by some of the most esteemed musical tunesmiths in the jazz canon, including Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton, Benny Golson, Lee Morgan, and Freddie Hubbard, with a sprinkling of band originals in the Messenger’s swingin’, hard-bop tradition.
