Tonight(July 15, 2013)would have been the 90th birthday of one of the greatest drummers in Modern Jazz. Joseph Rudolph Jones aka "Philly Joe" Jones, who earned his place in Jazz history from his time with Miles Davis from 1952 to 1958. He appeared on albums led by himself and is a sideman on some of the most influential recordings in this music. Philly Joe's long and varied career in Jazz took him all over the world and he is to this day one of the most influential drummers in Jazz. He died fairly young from cancer on August 30,1985 at age 62. Tonight's Jazz Feature is one of his finest albums under his name called "Philly Joe's Beat" It is by his working band that he put together in 1960. It includes one of the few recordings by a great trumpeter named Michael Downs. On tenor saxophone is fellow Philadelphian Bill Barron. Walter Davis Jr. is on piano and the great Paul Chambers is on bass and of course Philly Joe on drums. The band is tight and well rehearsed and the tunes include 3 that Philly Joe played when he was with Miles Davis (Salt Peanuts, Dear Old Stockholm and Two Bass Hit) plus one by trumpeter John Hines called "Muse Rapture" and an original by bassist Jimmy Garrison called "Lori", one by Philly Joe called "Got To Take Another Chance" and finally a tune from early Modern Jazz by Dizzy Gillespie called "That's Earl Brother". this operation.Happy Birthday Mr. Jones...your beat goes on!
