Jimmy Wormworth























When I was visiting New York City during the late 90s and early 2000s on a fairly frequent basis, I could always count on hearing drummer Jimmy Wormworth (and Jimmy Lovelace for that matter...) down at Smalls at some point during my journey and it was ALWAYS swinging! While not a household name, his accomplishments and playing speak for themselves in my opinion.

Fortunately for us, here's a trio of interviews with this Master drummer, a true living legend:




And special thanks to Chad Anderson who passed along this brief but great footage of Wormworth in action, trading fours with some slick, swinging moves:
