Review: Name a canonical jazz artist, and chances are Jimmy Cobb has shared a stage or recording studio with them. Cobb has been not just a jazz drummer but THE jazz drummer — a musician unmatched in technique and experience. The album’s classic, rich swing was recorded with a casualness that recalls the kind of sessions Cobb was booked for during the music’s heyday. This I Dig of You required no rehearsal, and was recorded in just one session. The thing that makes the album so special is the precision and detail the legendary drummer uses to carefully guide each song, responding to and amplifying the soloists in his quartet.
