31-01-2018 12:00:00 03-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Jimmy Cobb's 90th Birthday Celebration | Time varies A superb, mostly self–taught musician, drummer Jimmy Cobb is the elder statesman of the incredible Miles Davis bands of the 1950s and early '60s. Jimmy's inspirational work with Miles, John Coltrane, and Cannonball Adderley spanned the years 1957–1963, and included the 1959 masterpiece Kind of Blue, still the best–selling jazz album in history; he also played on the Miles Davis albums Sketches of Spain, Someday My Prince Will Come, and Live at Carnegie Hall, to name a few. After leaving the Davis group, Jimmy continued to work with Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers behind such leaders as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, and J.J. Johnson before joining Sarah Vaughan's trio for a nine–year run. Cobb made his recording debut as a leader in 2002 with Yesterdays, with contributions from Michal Brecker, Roy Hargrove, and Jon Faddis; his 2014 live album, The Original Mob, featured pianist Brad Mehldau and guitarist Peter Bernstein. "His time feel hasn't changed substantially in 50 years, which would be a problem if he weren't fully in command of its great undercurrent. So while his playing can suggest its own tribute, it also continues to be a living language…For someone like Jimmy Cobb, jazz history isn't a shapeless abstraction. Even when it's business, it's personal." (Nate Chinen, New York Times, 8.22.2013) Jimmy Cobb – drums Peter Bernstein – guitar Tadataka Unno – piano John Webber – bass http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=336570 Jazz Standard Jazz Standard
