    Default Jimmy Cobb, consummate jazz drummer for Miles Davis, dies at 91

    Jimmy Cobb, consummate jazz drummer for Miles Davis, dies at 91 | Washington Post

    "Jimmy Cobb, a jazz drummer who helped drive Miles Davis’s masterpiece “Kind of Blue,” an album of transcendent lyricism and spontaneity that also became one of the top-selling jazz recordings of all time, died May 24 at his home in Manhattan. He was 91.

    The cause was lung cancer, said his wife, Eleana Tee Cobb.

    In a career spanning nearly seven decades, Mr. Cobb was regarded as a consummate accompanist of understated vibrancy. That warmth and deceptively relaxed approach drew the admiration of Davis, who hired Mr. Cobb in 1958 as part of a world-class ensemble that included saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, bassist Paul Chambers, and pianist Bill Evans (and later Wynton Kelly).

    Mr. Cobb was the last surviving member of the musical combo known for its groundbreaking fusion of minimalism and improvisation."

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    RIP. Kind of Blue is certainly one of the most influential LPs in Jazz history, if not recorded music as a whole.
