Sad day. He will be missed. A great drummer has been silenced. RIP Jimmy. Thoughts with you and your family.

Damn. I've always loved Cobb's playing on Wayne Shorter's first record.

What an amazing musician - heard him most recently with Emmet Cohen in Connecticut about a year a half ago - played as great as always  -R.I.P. Mr. Cobb, you are missed

I saw Jimmy Cobb perform only twice.  Once was at the University of Pittsburgh Jazz Seminar concert.  It was an all-star lineup.  A pared-down group of Cobb, Pharoah Sanders, Kenny Barron and Robert Hurst performed 'So What'.  Roger Humphries later joined the band and engaged in a drum battle with Cobb on a tune or two.  The other time I saw Cobb was with Four Generations of Miles (with Sonny Fortune, Buster Williams and Mike Stern).  It was the last time I saw Fortune as well.  Cobb swung like crazy and soloed mightily.

Beyond his contributions to undisputed masterpieces like Kind of Blue and Smokin' at the Half Note, Cobb played on so many great albums.  I think that he is underrated given the impact that he had.

Thank you for the music, Mr. Cobb, and rest in peace.
