"... the classic Silver tracks here indicate Silver's key role in the soul-jazz movement that came shortly afterwards ..."
- The Guardian

"... one of the classic hard bop albums ... (Doodlin' was) Silver's first hit. Silver's solo is the highlight of this performance, the essence of inspired simplicity."
- Jazz.com

"... so widely synonymous with hard bop and Blue Note ... it's like trying to review Sgt. Pepper ... a terrific record ... you can put this in the car player, hit repeat and listen to it over and over again without getting too tired of it ... it started here, the first album released under the Jazz Messengers name, and arguably it never got better. There are no bad Messengers albums. Every one is worth hearing and owning. But there are two or three albums at the absolute pinnacle and this is one."
- All About Jazz

A seminal album in the history of hard bop and jazz, this is the first release from the Jazz Messengers and one of the only recordings with Horace Silver at the helm of the collective. Several of the original tunes Silver composed for this 1955 album are now standards, including The Preacher and Doodlin'.

"I would say that it’s bop with a little more energy to it. There was polite bop and then there was hard bop. The polite bop was more sophisticated … the hard bop is real slam, bang, kicking ass kind of music."
- Horace Silver

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
