Philly Joe's 4's on 4!

No, that isn't the album cover for the Miles Davis classic Workin' but it is totally rad nonetheless. Always coming up with the unexpected, Philly Joe was a very clever player. Although he may not appear on many top 5 most influential drummers lists, his unique application of traditional style Jazz drumming and incredible cymbal beat shouldn't be overlooked. His ensemble playing won the favor of all the greats. It has been said Philly Joe was the "go to" drummer for Miles Davis AND Bill Evans! He was essentially the house drummer for Prestige, Riverside and Blue Note....omg!

Time to hit the Wilcoxon...
