Giants of Jazz 19 honoring Jimmy Cobb
November 26, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$50 – $60
If the world of Jazz crowned their legendary musicians, Jimmy Cobb would be sitting atop a throne. But for now, he sits behind a collection of drums that have seen him recording and sitting-in with the likes of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Earl Bostic, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn and almost any jazz legend you can think of.
He is the last surviving musician that played on Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, the groundbreaking album that skyrocketed Davis to fame. 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 landmark Miles Davis recordings.
