Introduction to the video lesson: Philly Joe Jones drum solo

This lesson contains the transcription of Philly Joe Jones' drum breaks from the song Ah Leu Cha by Miles Davis quintet.

American drummer Philly Joe Jones is rated as one of the great jazz masters. His style has especially characterized the hard-bop period in the 50's. Born in Philadelphia in 1923, he became known as Philly Joe Jones for not being confused with Jo Jones, Count Basie Orchestra's drummer at that time. From 1950 to 1958 he was a member of Miles Davis' quintet, one of the most important groups in jazz history. Philly Joe Jones has also played with Bill Evans and was a founding member of band Dameronia in 1981.
The transcription in the drum sheet, taken from Miles Davis' album "Round About Midnight" (1955), is the drums chart of the intro and the finale of Ah-Leu-Cha, with the various Philly Joe Jones' drum breaks.
