SKF NOTE: Just when I least expected it, up pops Benny Golson & The Philadelphians on Amazon’s $5.00 jazz album list with superb Philly Joe Jones drumming throughout. I’m posting Stablemates from the album as an example. Listen to Philly Joe’s 52 second introduction. It’s musical, funny, slick, and Philly’s time never falters.
Nobody plays like that. Nobody.
Benny Golson, Lee Morgan, Ray Bryant, Bobby Timmons, Percy Heath, and Philly Joe. Recorded on November 17, 1958 and reissued by Blue Note in 1998. I don’t know how I missed this one the first time around, but I’m enjoying this music now.
