Jo Jones contribution to the development of Jazz drumming has been summarized by Leonard Feather in the Book of Jazz (Horizon Press): "Modern drumming may be said to have made it's first long step toward maturity when Jo Jones, arriving in New York with the Count Basie band in 1936, became the new musicians' idol. Jones' top-cymbal beat out-swung that of every predecessor; more important, he was able, through rhythmic effects on the bass drum and snares, to underline and punctuate the various accents in each arrangement to an extent never heard before in swing music." This rare audiophile recording originally released in 1960 features the great Jo Jones leading a band of all stars including Harry "Sweets" Edison, trumpet; Jimmy Forest, tenor saxophone; Bennie Green, trombone; Tommy Flanagan, piano; and Tommy Potter, bass.
