For jazz lovers, the name of Art Blakey is not just that of a great American drummer, but that of a true legend. Although he continues to be largely underestimated outside the drumming community, he is one of the fathers of modern jazz drums, standard bearer of the be bop style along with Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, discoverer of talents, great soloist and incredible leader.
In over half a century of career - and more than 100 recorded albums - he was able to play with artists such as Parker, Gillespie, Miles Davis (with whom he also recorded several albums) and in quartet with clarinetist Buddy De Franco. A century after its birth, Oris pays tribute to him with a limited edition watch of 1,000 pieces: the Oris Art Blakey Limited Edition.
