The great drummer Mike Clark posted this recently on Facebook. It's profound. It's also long, nearly two hours, but it's a must watch if you want to know about the history of modern jazz drumming. Art Taylor worked with virtually every big name in the history of jazz. He moved to France in the 60's and stayed there for over 18 years; then he came back to the U.S. 

This man has played on over 200 jazz records. 

 

Warren Smith, the interviewer, played in Max Roach's percussion ensemble, M'Boom. He's so knowledgeable, he asks all the right questions. 

 

If you haven't read Art Taylor's book, Notes and Tones, you haven't done your jazz homework.

One of my heroes. A.T. was also one of the most prolific drummers of his era. I have his book Notes & Tones, which is a nice data point from his era. My favorite recordings feature him with Red Garland, but he recorded and performed with so many of the greats that he is like the Hal Blaine or Earl Palmer of jazz recordings.
