The Jazz Messengers
Composed by Lee Morgan who clearly knew his way around the tune.
Walter Davis plays piano on this particular film. Jymie Merritt on bass, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on bass, Art Blakey on drums.
The Messengers began with a series of groups led or co-led by drummer Blakey and pianist Horace Silver, but the name was not used on the original recordings.
However, Blakey had used the name "Jazz Messengers" since the late forties for various groups.
