Must Own: Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers - Indestructible
This was the last album by Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers to be released on Blue Note records. It also features Lee Morgan, who returned to the Jazz Messengers lineup after being away for a few years. He replaced Freddie Hubbard. Oddly enough, Freddie Hubbard was Lee Morgan’s replacement a few years earlier.
