Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers Archive Track

Jamie Cullum plays an hour of jazz music ranging from its heritage to its future.

This week, he returns to the BBC archives to dig out a classic session recorded in the past. He selects an example of Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers playing on Jazz 625 in 1965.

Previous archive sessions have included performances by Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and the John Surman Octet as well as Count Basie and Cannonball Adderley performing on board a 'Jazz Ship'.
