Sam Woodyard - Jazz Drummer (Jan. 7, 1925 - Sept. 20, 1988)
Duke Ellington - The Shepherd
Here's my annual tribute to my dad. The late, great Sam Woodyard. Here's clip I found on youtube with Sam playing in a trio setting with Duke Ellington, in a sculpture garden Of Miro pieces. He was well known for his brush work on drums. I don't think you hear that style of drumming much today. Enjoy.
