Idris Muhammad (born Leo Morris) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on November, 13, 1939.
At 16, Muhammad was the drummer on Fats Domino's 1956 hit "Blueberry Hill".
He's been the backbone of many bands including ones led by Lou Donaldson, Johnny Griffin, Pharoah Sanders and Grover Washington, Jr.
Britt Alexander wrote "Inside The Music, The Life of Idris Muhammad" about this master of the drums.
Muhammad and Ahmad Jamal have been touring together since 1995.
A master pianist needs a master drummer and Jamal got one...and a master bass player too.
That's how we grow.
