The official Art Blakey website is owned and operated by the Estate of Art Blakey. This site provides accurate biographical information on Art Blakey’s background, his accomplishments and contributions to jazz music.

Art Blakey’s recordings, insight, and passion for his craft were his gift to the myriad of people around the world who were moved and inspired by his music. As he used to say, “To pass through life and miss this music is to miss out on one of the best things about living.” It is our gift and greatest honor as his children and grandchildren to keep his memory alive and to ensure that future generations do not miss out on his music.
