Philly Joe Jones

Philly Joe Jones, born Joseph Rudolph Jones on July 15, 1923, is remembered as one of the most innovative jazz drummers of all time, particularly in the area of BeBop. To avoid being mistaken for Count Basie's most famous drummer, "Papa Jo" Jones, he dubbed himself "Philly Joe" after his hometown of Philadelphia.

Jones died on August 30, 1985, at the age of 62. The body of work he left behind includes his contributions to more than 500 albums. In addition, Philly Joe left us Brush Artisty, published in 1968 (now out of print) by Premier Drum Company. This deceptively simple book contains interesting ways of controlling and using the wire brushes. All of these, with the exception of No.1 are unique and original.
