I've always been a huge Art Blakey fan. His sense of groove and timing and pocket are second to none. I also love that he was an amazing band leader who employed many musicians who would later go on to be amazing in their own right. He was also very humble and a very hard worker. I love when amazing musicians don't let it go to their head! Also...that hat is the best.
Art Blakey, one of the great band leaders
