Rhythm Section 101

The act of playing in a rhythm section and accompanying a soloist as a cohesive unit is an art in itself. These cats really set the bar for how it's done. Miles knew that and that's why he hired them !

From a concert recorded in 1960 in Germany, check out the impeccable rhythm team of:

Jimmy Cobb - Drums

Paul Chambers - Bass

Wynton Kelly - Piano

(...and some tenor player)

And on this clip Oscar Peterson sits it on piano and Stan Getz joins Coltrane on Thelonious Monk's "Hackensack":
