The line-up of drummer Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers shifted in 1961 with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard replacing Lee Morgan, pianist Cedar Walton replacing Bobby Timmons, and the addition of Curtis Fuller on trombone who joined existing members Wayne Shorter on tenor saxophone and Jymie Merritt on bass. This powerful new sextet line-up first recorded on the album Mosaic, and quickly returned to the studio the next month to begin recording Buhaina’s Delight. The album featured 3 compositions by Shorter (“Backstage Sally” “Contemplation” “Reincarnation Blues”) along with 1 each by Fuller (“Bu’s Delight”) and Walton (“Shaky Jake”), closing with an high-intensity arrangement of “Moon River.” – Blue Note
