Never seen Bernard P playing ja ... mmmph before. Straight backbeat but swings like mad. I've seen AJ on a few album covers but I never really noticed him because other things in the music were grabbing me. Maybe that says something about his accompaniment skills?

? It was a big fave of mine in the 70s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FdWPeHFAMk
