Default Re: Philly Joe Jones

One album I really dig is Dexter Gordon: Dexter Calling. I just picked up the Blues for Dracula album the other day and I really dig it. Besides the monologue, there is some really great playing on there. The solos on "Ow" are really tastey, probably the best use of space I have heard from Philly Joe. I also really like his drumming on "Gone, Gone, Gone" from the Miles Davis Porgy and Bess album. He was definitely a character...in addition to being a beast of a drummer.
