Klook with Johnny Griffin 1970
What a find! Here's one of my personnel favorites, the great Kenny Clarke with Johnny Griffin circa. 1970:
Now if that cymbal beat doesn't inspire you...
...you must be dead!
But seriously folks, Klook really set the standard for all of us in terms of ride cymbal playing and you owe it to yourself to do your homework, study the greats and get your own cymbal beat together.
And you know who you are! lol ; )
