SKF NOTE: A thank you to “Jazz Video Guy” Bret Primack for this new to me clip of Philly Joe Jones as a member of Bill Evans’s Trio. Instructive! The video work on Philly Joe gives us several good moments for studying his playing: brushes, sticks, straight ahead swinging, stop time. I find myself wishing we could hear/see this song — the full concert! — using the camera capturing Philly Joe only.
I enjoyed working with Bret — years ago and ever so briefly — on a drumming project that never went public. Years before getting to know Bret I looked forward to reading his frequent Down Beat interviews. In the same way I am a “Jazz Video Guy” YouTube channel subscriber.
