Moanin ' is a jazz album by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers recorded in for the Blue Note label and released in This was Blakey's first album for Blue Note in several years, after a period of recording for a number of different labels, and marked both a homecoming and a fresh start. Originally the LP was self-titled, but the instant popularity of the bluesy opening track " Moanin' " by pianist Bobby Timmons led to its becoming known by that title.
The rest of the originals are by saxophonist Benny Golson who was not with the Jazz Messengers for long, this being the only American album on which he is featured. Of the originals on the album, all but the "Drum Thunder Suite" became staples of the Messengers book, even after Timmons and Golson were gone. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in his meticulous Hackensack studios, this recording reflects the hallmark precision associated with that engineer — on the reissue there is a brief conversation between Lee Morgan and Rudy Van Gelder going over Morgan's solo.
The album stands Third Theme: Harlems Disciples - Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers* - Moanin one of the archetypal hard bop albums of the era, for the intensity of Blakey's drumming and the work of Morgan, Golson and Timmons, and for its combination of old-fashioned gospel and blues influences with a sophisticated modern Third Theme: Harlems Disciples - Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers* - Moanin sensibility.
