Joe Morello: St. Louis Blues 1964

SKF NOTE: The internet has some excellent video of Joe Morello for all of us to study. I may be late to the party, but I don’t remember seeing this 1964 in concert clip of Joe with The Dave Brubeck Quartet playing “St. Louis Blues.” I came across it two days ago.

The camera angles are good. Several opportunities to study Morello’s hands. Also, the drummer, and pianist Dave Brubeck, engage in several minutes of the band’s characteristic layering of time signatures. The closer is a thematic drum solo by the one-and-only.
