Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Moanin' (1958)

Hard Bop from drummer Art Blakey and his collective
of jazz hungry band members.

You don't come here for a lecture on Blue Note
recordings - you need a fix of guitars and shouting
but maybe this description will stop you from going
to an inferior blog - see, my faithful download monkeys,
how I look after you.

This is groovy, swinging cool shit - imagine an early '60s
gritty detective film - black and white of course - with
say, Steve McQueen wearing a black polo necked sweater,
posing in an open topped, impossibly desirable muscle car,
having just offed the bad dudes, on his way to see his chic but
sexy girlfriend where they will smoke cigarettes in such a way
that you will want to start smoking yourself.

This would be the soundtrack.
