Condolences to his family and friends. Joe was one of few drummers I greatly respected and enjoyed in my youth. R.I.P. Mr Morello.
Joe used Ludwig drums in a jazz setting and his sound was amazing.
Truly one of a kind.
Yes, great drummer…
RIP and respect.
If that was him in the extended Take Five, then I’ve got strong memories of the way he turned his solo, not into a demo of technique, but into a ‘clinic’ in exploring five-time.
Why was my post deleted from this thread? Just a comment about the Take Five solo???
At first I didn’t realize who this was, then learned that I’d actually seen him play many years ago… as well as owning a couple of the Brubeck-Desmond records he played on. I never realized he was so influential and revered.
