Jazz Groups Led by Drummers (Next Time on ATJ)
On the next All This Jazz, which kicks off at 10 o'clock on Saturday night (October 20th) on KWGS-FM 89.5-1, our second-hour theme will be jazz combos led by drummers.
Tony Williams, Buddy Rich, Matt Wilson, Art Blakey, and Jack DeJohnette: we'll hear from bands under the respective direction of all these greats, and a few others, on the forthcoming edition of ATJ.
Please join us, dear rhythm buffs!
As Duke Ellington --- whose longtime drummer, the wonderful Sonny Greer, appears above --- used to put it, more or less: it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ride cymbal.
