The Great Jimmy Cobb's most famous work is on Miles Davis' Kind of Blue (1959), considered by many to be the quintessential jazz record.  Cobb is the last surviving player from the session.  Legendary jazz drummer, Jimmy Cobb, was born in Washington, D.C. on January 20, 1929. 
A superb, mostly self-taught musician, Jimmy is the elder statesman of all the incredible Miles Davis bands. Jimmy’s inspirational work with Miles, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly and Co. spanned 1957 until 1963 and included the masterpiece "Kind of Blue", the most popular jazz recording in history. He also played on "Sketches of Spain", Someday My Prince will Come", "Live at Carnegie Hall, "Live at the Blackhawk", "Porgy and Bess", and many, many other watermarks Miles Davis recordings. At 87 Jimmy is still going strong teaching and performing.  Set back and enjoy the journey with Jimmy Cobb.
A special thanks go out to Rashid Booker for making it happen.
Peace
