Got up nice and early to transcribe Joe Morello’s drum solo on Take 5. This is taken from the legendary recording of Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – 1959.
Joe was one of the first drummers to explore odd time signatures and this album was seen a revolutionary as it explored many different time signatures.
1959 was a big year for Jazz music as some of the most influential albums were released, including:
Kind of Blue – Miles Davis
Giant Steps – John Coltrane
The Shape of Jazz to Come – Ornette Coleman
Portrait in Jazz – Bill Evans Trio
Mingus Ah Um – Charles Mingus
These were all landmark albums, changed the way Jazz was perceived and setting a new standard of creativity.
