Reggie Workman on Art Blakey

Reggie Workman shares recollections of performing with a motivated Art Blakey.

In an interview segment the “Jazz Messengers'” former bassist talks about the profound positive affect that Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Eckstine had on Blakey during one of his shows, seated in the front row.

It was indeed a big moment for Art Blakey, leaving Workman without words capable of describing the music produced at the performance.
