Triplets, a Hi-Hat, and Ears: Perfect Art Blakey

SKF NOTE: Art Blakey shows us on the title track from Lee Morgan’s 1964 Tom Cat album, that perfect drum accompaniment doesn’t require a bazillion notes played on multiple drums and cymbals. No. Quarter note triplets, a hi-hat, and ears work perfect.

This whole album is excellent. Lee Morgan (trumpet), Curtis Fuller (trombone), Jackie McLean (alto sax), Bob Cranshaw (bass), and Art Blakey (drums).
