Very sad to hear of the death yesterday of drummer Ed Thigpen, nicknamed Mr Taste.
The music, the touch, the quality, the listening – in the clip above of The Man I Love with Oscar Peterson and Ray Brown – speak for themselves.
He was a true legend and inspiration for all drummers and many musicians
He accompanied singers and artists and played songs not just the drums.
Sadly missed but will swing on with his other friends in the sky.
