Bill Cosby on Jazz Drumming

This clip has been making the rounds for sometime now....but it's so perfect I had to post it.

Thank you to bassist Stefano Valdo for reminding me of this classic footage:

  1. Great story and told by a great story-teller!
    (Added bonus: bon mots by two great wits of our time: Jack Benny and Dick Cavett.) I never knew the story that Bill Cosby was an amateur drummer. These days, a story such as seen here would never be told; the host would interject his own "business" into the story or the guest would be cut off for a commercial. The story here is a testimony to Cosby's comedic genius and Cavett's presence as the host.
