so just as a clarification - I'm pretty sure Idris didn't play on any Sam Cooke records, he was his touring drummer for a while - I can't remember whether he got the job FROM June Garnder or whether June Gardner got the job from him, either way one of them reccomended the other, and both are amazing drummers - with Gardner being the guy with Cooke on what I believe to be the greatest live album ever "One Night Stand: Live at the Harlem Square Club"

I LOVE Idris.

my favorite Idris w/Ahmad, 2005 Poinciana...splendid, tasteful, elegant, simply the best version of it I've ever seen...damn nice venue too! He cuts loose ~4:50....watchit!!! (great openhanded independence workout, that 3 on the hat takes some practice, try it!)
