Impex Records is proud to announce their next all-analog mastered 180-gram LP release: Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers' seminal and highly influential 1957 Columbia Records album Drum Suite. The extraordinary single-take suite on side A - Art Blakey's "The Sacrifice," Ray Bryant's "Cubano Chant," and Oscar Pettiford's "Oscalypso" - showcases the immense talents of such legendary players as drummer "Papa" Jo Jones, bassist Oscar Pettiford, pianist Ray Bryant, and percussionists Charles Wright, Sabu and Candido.

Side B features three tracks ("Nica's Tempo, "Dee's Dilemma," "Just For Marty") that the Jazz Messengers (Bill Hardman, Jackie McLean, Sam Dockery, Spanky DeBrest) originally recorded in 1956 for Blakey's Columbia debut Hard Bop. Drum Suite is a dazzling and powerful ensemble piece honoring ancient African tribal rituals in a modern bop setting.
