Al Foster is The Greatest


Junior Member
Last year, at the start of the COVID horror, my wife and I --anticipating the coming months-- bought a big flat-screened television with sound system to go with it. Didn't know what I was missing. My wife goes to bed early. I punch up You Tube and play vids of my favorite musicians. For the last two nights I've been listening to Joe Henderson, the trio he had with Dave Holland and Al Foster. Watching the vid on the telly with the superior sound brought me to a new level of appreciation of Al Foster. The way he listens, serves the music, but exhibits mastery and technique as well. For living drummers, Al, Roy, and Jack D. are the Three Kings of jazz drumming. Punch up You Tube and write in Joe Henderson y todavia la quiero and see a great drummer play perfectly.
