Discover A Giant Of Jazz.

During the 1950s and 60s, Jimmy Cobb sat on the leading edge of a revolution in modern jazz. Jimmy played live concerts and recorded on dozens of jazz albums, including one the most popular and influential jazz records of all times, Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue”. Along with Miles, the other musicians on the Kind Of Blue sessions were jazz legends John Coltrane (sax), Cannonball Adderley (sax), Bill Evans (piano) and Paul Chambers (bass). 

In addition to several albums with Miles Davis, Jimmy’s inventive yet supportive drumming allowed him to tour and record with many of the post-bop era’s top musicians such as Wes Montgomery, Sarah Vaughan, Kenny Dorham, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Kelly, Hubert Laws, Art Pepper, Sonny Stitt, Dinah Washington and others.
