Papa Jo Jones

Papa Jo Jones. One of my favorite drummers to watch, with the best smile to ever sit behind a drum set. All fun. In this solo from 1957, he puts the sticks down and plays with his hands.

Papa Jo played with the best of ’em: Bille Holiday, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry, Benny Goodman, John Coltrane. The list goes on.
