thread to hip people to little known drummers

As the first drummer to "Hip people to", I nominate the great New Orleans drummer, James Black. My favorite James Black tune is There's a break in the Road, by Betty Harris.

Check him out. He's awesome!

If anyone gets a chance to see Phil Hey I highly recommend they check it out his live shows. Phenomenal jazz drummer that would hold his own with the very very best of them. He plays regularly @ the artists' quarter in St Paul, MN, plenty of videos online for sampling.
