Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers: “Dat Dere” (1961)

Art Blakey was one of the inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming. He was, and remains, influential on mainstream jazz. His band, the Jazz Messengers, was a proving ground for many jazz musicians for over 30 years.

“Dat Dere” was composed by Bobby Timmons who played the piano for the Jazz Messengers between 1958 and 1961.
