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.
You can read more about Mr. Jones at drummerworld.com. We also enjoyed this interview with Harold from 2012.
Here’s a video of Harold Jones playing with Count Basie in 1968:
Pray that you had a very great birthday celebration and that you will have many more years of superb performances. May God bless you always. Bobbie
