Sam Woodyard with Duke Ellington

Some great footage today of one of the finest big band drummers to play with the Duke Ellington Orchestra - Sam Woodyard:

Thanks to Mike Tarrani for finding that one.

And if you notice: no hi-hat or cymbals on that one !

Here are another couple of great clips of Woodyard playing and soloing with the entire Ellington Orchestra on "Kind of Dukish":
