Drummer Art Blakey lead his Jazz Messengers ensemble for many years in which the jazz became the "classical music of the 20th century" and was a central figure in the development of the Hard Bop style which characterized the record company Blue Note during the 1950s and 1960s. The American jazz star ensemble One for All is in more than one may the straight follower of the heritage of the Jazz Messengers, also featuring three winds players in the forefront and playing similar musical material.

“One For All is no-nonsense modern straight-ahead jazz played by some of the top interpreters of the idiom, and is easily recommended.”
