Art Blakey Like Someone In Love Jazz Music CD Review

wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Like Someone In Love. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

Jazz music fans will recognize some of the well known guests that have been assembled to play along with Blakey on several of the tracks. Artists like Afred Lion and Rudy Van Gelder just to name a couple.

This is a first rate CD, delivering a little something for everyone. I give it two thumbs up. It’s quite simply great listening. A must buy if you're even mildly into Jazz music.

While the entire CD is really very good some of my favorites are track 4 - Sleeping Dancer Sleep On, track 3 - Noise In The Attic, and track 6 - Sleeping Dancer Sleep On

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Like Someone In Love. This is a great track!
