In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Art Blakey's fascination with drums went beyond his own playing behind the vaunted Jazz Messengers. This 1962 album takes Blakey's 1958 foray into African-Cuban music, Holiday For Skins, to that album's roots. Where the earlier album included both Cuban traditional instruments derived from African ones and a contemporary for 1958 jazz ensemble, this album employs mainly traditional African instruments. Hats off to Blakey for assembling this intense drum ensemble
