Kenny Clarke - "On the Alamo"
Some great footage that I hadn't seen before of Klook with the Martial Solal trio from 1958 featuring Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet:
This is a great opportunity to check out Klook's left hand and comping. In particular, dig how Clarke often digs into the quarter notes on the snare drum and the stick/brushes combination near the end.
And also...from Jazz Profiles, a wonderful, recent article on the legacy of Kenny Clarke.
