"Fertile, exciting music" NEW YORK TIMES
Drummer Billy Drummond first came to international prominence when he joined the bands of the legendary Horace Silver and, later, J.J. Johnson and Sonny Rollins, with whom he spent three formative years. Now one of the busiest players of his generation, he can be heard on nearly 300 albums, including three critically acclaimed recordings as a band leader, one of which - cult hit Dubai (Criss Cross) - was named Number 1 Best Jazz CD that year by the New York Times.
