Wynton Marsalis w/Joe Farnsworth
Joe Farnsworth is a great contemporary bebop drummer I've quite enjoyed listening to over the past few years and whose resume reads like a who's who of the jazz world. His hard swinging style is influenced by his teachers Alan Dawson, Kenny Washington and Art Taylor and he was everywhere while I was in New York, studying there back in 2004.
From a gig at the "House of Tribes" a few years back, here's Joe Farnsworth with Wynton Marsalis on Thelonious Monk's "Green Chimneys":
Here's a few other clips of Joe Farnsworth in action:
And here with saxophonist Pharoah Sanders:
