The Year of Tony Bennett bloggers would like to wish drummer Harold Jones a very happy birthday!
Harold Jones was Count Basie’s favorite drummer and he’s our favorite drummer too. He has been playing for Tony Bennett since 2006. He also spends a lot of his free time doing drumming workshops and playing with his own band, The Bossmen, in California.
Here’s a video of Harold Jones playing with Count Basie in 1968:
p.s. Hope you, Tony and rest of the quartet will be visiting us in Portland, Oregon or Seattle this year. We miss you!
