Art Blakey: God Has Given Us Another Chance



"Art's tough-love leadership style gave each band member the chance to find and prove himself, as Wayne [Shorter] remembered: 'Blakey told us that every time we go on the stand, we should remember this one thing: We should always remember that God has given us another chance to come out and clean up the mess we have made the night before.'"
