Blakey, Art definitions

Britannica Concise

U.S. jazz drummer. Born in Pittsburgh, Blakey worked with F. Henderson's big band before joining B. Eckstine's forward-looking ensemble (1944-47). His prodigious technique and thunderous attack assured his role as one of the principal drum stylists in modern jazz. With H. Silver, Blakey formed the Jazz Messengers in 1954, and the group, with its aggressive blues-inflected approach, became the archetypal hard-bop unit (see bebop). Many band members became celebrated, and the group became one of the most enduring ensembles in modern jazz.
