Default Re: Philly Joe Jones

Philly Joe is a great great legend of a drummer. I love the four sessions Cookin, Relaxin, Workin and Steamin- Salt Peanuts off of Steamin' is THE lesson on uptempo hard bop drum soloing and time playing.
Other albums that I love are Sonny Rollins- Newk's Time, Miles Davis- Milestones and Hank Mobley- Workout. I think every drummer should transcribe some Philly Joe Jones and Max Roach soloing regardless of genre. Everyone has something to learn from either of these guys.
