Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. Pounding! This is the long-awaited re-release of a lost session that Blakey recorded in 1958, with a triple-drum rhythm group that included himself, Philly Joe Jones, and Roy Haynes – plus some additional conga work by Ray Barretto. Unlike other Blakey "drum orgy" sessions, though, this one's got a much straighter jazz feel – with plenty of solo space for trumpeter Lee Morgan and pianist Bobby Timmons.
The bagpipe became known worldwide during the expansion of the British Empire, due to the use of the Scottish Great Highland bagpipe by British military forces that included Highland regiments. That, coupled with the large number of pipers trained for military service in the two World Wars, led to a surge of popularity during the twentieth century. Not only are the pipes heard at formal events, ceremonies, and military observations, they are listened to for pleasure. This album features a rousing and proud collection of pipes music from Scotland and all of the UK, and from Nova Scotia in Canada. Marches, strathspey, jigs (including Galician and Asturian jigs), reels, solo pipes as well as Saor Patrol’s ‘Celtic rock’ with pipes, drums and electric guitar are all included here.
