A great clip today from master organist Jimmy Smith with Quentin Warren and the great Billy Hart. This is great old footage of Billy Hart that I particularly like because of how light and "tippin'" his cymbal beat is.
I have always found that playing with an organist and no bass player is especially challenging because there is no attack to the bass notes, so it's easy to feel like the bottom is lost. What that means is that the great drummers who have made an organ trio swing have an incredibly strong quarter note in their cymbal beat.
Billy Hart is appearing this week at Dizzy's in NYC with his quartet featuring Mark Turner, Ben Street, and Ethan Iverson. It is one of my favorite groups playing right now make sure to check it out!
