Jimmy Wormworth is a great drummer of vast experience that most people don't even know about (!) Fortunately he is still active, working in NYC, plays frequently at Small's and swinging his butt off !
Check out his dynamic sense of swing, shown here playing with tenor titan Grant Stewart:
Some real nice swingin' jazz drumming there. I love the sound and feel he gets from the snare drum during his solo spot - very much from the Philly Joe Jones school of drumming (who maybe got that from Big Sid Catlett?) Great jazz drumming from someone who was there and who has lived it.
