Not every drummer comes equipped to tackle the titanic legacy of forebear Art Blakey, a legend not just for his taste in bandsmen but for his combination of elemental power and musical finesse. But Ralph Peterson's always been among the chosen few, and this week he's leading a band chock-full of former Messengers: Reggie Workman, Donald Harrison, Billy Pierce, Brian Lynch and Donald Brown.
