Reissue. Comes with new liner notes. Available only for a limited period of time until March 20, 2015. The music of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe – composers usually associated with the Broadway stage, brought into a whole new light here by the late 50s Jazz Messengers! The album's one of Art Blakey's more unusual outings – part of that great 1957 run away from Blue Note – but it cooks strongly with a lineup that includes Jackie McLean on alto, Johnny Griffin on tenor, and Bill Hardman on trumpet – all players who bring an unusual degree of bite to these tunes, while still reflecting the lyrical beauty within!
Concord Music Group will release five new titles in its Original Jazz Classics Remasters series. Enhanced by 24-bit remastering by Joe Tarantino, several bonus tracks on nearly each disc (some previously unreleased) and new liner notes providing historical context to the original material, the series celebrates the 60th anniversary of Riverside Records, the prolific New York-based label that showcased some of the most influential jazz artists and recordings of the 1950s and '60s.

In addition to becoming an instant classic, Manne's LP was also among of the best-selling jazz platters of all time.
