A love affair with the drums
Jo Jones (October 7, 1911 – September 3, 1985)
This was filmed in June 1969 and appeared at the end of the French film "l'Aventure du Jazz."
Old time New Yorkers (like me) got the chance to see him in his later years play regular gigs at the West End jazz club in New York City.
It wasn't unusual to see people like Max Roach and Roy Haynes sitting back and thoroughly enjoying the show.
That's how we grow.
