February 1962 European concert tour program
Original vintage concert program produced for Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers’ February 1962 European tour. The Jazz Messengers now consisted of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, saxophonist Wayne Shorter, double bassist Jymie Merritt, trombonist Curtis Fuller and pianist Cedar Walton. Hubbard and Walton became permanent members of the group following the 1961 departures of trumpeter Lee Morgan and pianist Bobby Timmons. The album Mosaic was recorded with this new line-up, produced by Alfred Lion and released immediately prior to the European Tour by Blue Note.
