Jimmy Cobb: Live At The Village Vanguard

The drummer is 84 — he's been around the jazz scene for a while. But he's been more than around: He was the drummer on Miles Davis' late-'50s and early-'60s masterpieces. These days, he's still touring the world, leading bands like this international quartet. Watch a live performance.

The drummer Jimmy Cobb is 84 — which, even if you didn’t know his name, would signal that he’s been around the jazz scene for a while. But he’s been more than around: He was the drummer when Miles Davis recorded his late-’50s and early-’60s masterpieces, and then toured with Sarah Vaughan for nearly a decade. He’s freelanced with just about every great of his generation. He’s still touring around the world, these days often fronting the bands and recordings.

Cobb brings an international trio to New York’s Village Vanguard for a week — and, for one night, welcomes trusted tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson. WBGO and NPR Music will present a live video webcast and radio broadcast of that quartet on Wednesday, August 21 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Personnel
  • Jimmy Cobb, drums
