Arthur "Art" Blakey (October 11, 1919 – October 16, 1990) 

known later as Abdullah Ibn Buhaina, was an American Grammy 

Award-winning jazz drummer and bandleader.

 Along with Kenny Clarke and Max Roach, he was one of the 

inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming. He is known

 as a powerful musician and a vital groover  his brand of bluesy,

 funky hard bop was and continues to be profoundly influential 

on mainstream jazz. For more than 30 years his band, Art Blakey

 and the Jazz Messengers, included many young musicians who went

 on to become prominent names in jazz. The band's legacy is thus 

not only known for the music it produced, but as a proving ground

 for several generations of jazz musicians. Blakey's groups are 

matched only by those of Miles Davis in this regard. Blakey was 

inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame (in 1982), the Grammy Hall of 

Fame (in 2001), and was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.
