Blackwell (returns)

Thank you to David Stanoch who reminded me the other day via the Facebook of these amazing clips of Ed Blackwell. I posted these here a few years back but they are so awesome it's worth reposting them just's Ed Blackwell!

And if you are interested in reading some excellent research written on Blackwell's unique style, be sure to check out David Schmalenberger's DMA thesis "Stylistic Evolution of Jazz Drummer Ed Blackwell: The Cultural Intersection of New Orleans and West Africa".
