Default Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Little talk of west coast jazz, so I'll offer up a personal fave. I can't find a YouTube link for this one, but here's the CD info,+Vol.+1.htm

Shelly Manne was a mother******. One of the most tasteful drummers I've heard. Shelly had great hands but it was his musicality that captures me. He could sit back and lay a swinging foundation or he could kick the band in the ass and stoke the fire. Great dynamics, great touch, great understanding of the FORM.

I recommend this one without reservation. The take of Love For Sale is my fave on this one.
