'Wakey Blakey' is a new band playing the music of legendary drummer Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers but with the lesser known sextet line up as exemplified by the stellar 1960s front-line of Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller and Wayne Shorter plus the powerhouse of pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Reggie Workman and Mr Blakey. This project demonstrates hard-bop with a frighteningly fresh feel; the music is wildly high-energy and unbelievably swinging. Featuring some of finest talent on the British Jazz scene: JAMES DAVISON trumpet, RORY INGHAM trombone, ALEX HITCHCOCK tenor sax, MATT CARTER piano, MISHA MULLOV-ABBADO bass & SEBASTIAAN de KROM drums.
