O’s Notes: The legendary trumpeter Valery Ponomarev leads a large ensemble in a tribute to his former bandleader on Our Father Who Art Blakey. Blakey’s Jazz Messengers were the launching pad for many jazz stars and Ponomarev is proud to be among the alumni. Special guest Benny Golson adds a warm tenor sax on “Moanin'” and his own “Blues March”. “Jordu” and “No Hay Problemas” are other highlights in the seven-song session. This live set is one to sit back, relax, tap your feet and enjoy!
