The Great Jazz Drummers, Week Four

Art Blakey

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees apply).

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers were an institution in Jazz, a training ground for young artists to hone their chops and learn from the master. Driving it all was the relentless swing of Art Blakey, whose drumming style helped to define the sounds of both BeBop and Hard Bop. As we enter Blakey’s centennial year, join us to learn more about what made his drum work so extraordinary.
