Al Foster [drums]

The great drummer Al Foster celebrates the release of his eloquent and important new recording. Foster is well-known for his long association with Miles Davis. His melodic drumming and rhythmic inventions were the pulse of Davis’ bands throughout the ’70s and ’80s. In his autobiography, Miles related that he hired Al because, “he could set up shit for everyone else to play off and could keep the groove going forever.” Celebrated for making everyone around him sound better, Foster’s life in music has numerous other highlights including important work with Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Stan Getz, McCoy Tyner, and Joe Henderson. Rollins called him “the last of the great living jazz drummers.” He is joined here by a simply brilliant quintet featuring saxophonist Chris Potter, pianist Kevin Hays, bassist Vicente Archer and a surprise, very special guest trumpeter.
