Legendary jazz drummer, Jimmy Cobb, is the elder statesman of all the incredible Miles Davis bands. Jimmy’s inspirational work with Miles, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly spanned from 1957 until 1963, and included the masterpiece "Kind of Blue", the most popular jazz recording in history.
Larry Coryell deserves a special place in the history books as one of the pioneers of jazz-rock. He brought an alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s. As a true eclectic, armed with a brilliant technique, he is comfortable in almost every style, covering almost every base from the most distortion-laden electric work to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines on acoustic guitar.
At the age of 10 years old, virtuoso Joey DeFrancesco was playing gigs with legendary musicians like Philly Joe Jones and Hank Mobley. He signed his first recording contract with Columbia Records at the age of 16 and joined Miles Davis' group in the late Eighties. The two-time Grammy Nominee, recognized as the Master of the Jazz Organ, has put out over 20 recordings as a leader and continues to collaborate with some of the top names in modern jazz. Joey DeFrancesco is one of the jazz scene's true pioneers.
