Max Roach playing a tribute to



"Papa" Jo Jones. He acquired that nickname in part to distinguish himself from the "Philly" Joe Jones. Jones is the only pre-bop drummer on my top 11 list. He is the original drummer for Count Basie, and practically invented that classic hi-hat beat. What can I say? Listen to him playing with Lester Young and Teddy Wilson.
