Kind of Blue was my first jazz album. I knew nothing of jazz at the time and a friend recommended I try it.
I put it on, listening 50 seconds ....what no drums? Then it happened.
Great touch this guy.

Freddie Freeloader will always be the song I start my students on when we start looking at swing jazz. It’s the absolute essence what simple jazz drumming excellence.

He will be missed. I remember listening to "So What" from Kind of Blue and taking off the left headphone so I could really hear the ride. Memories. I think I'll do that today.
