Suggestions needed: good "two feel" players/recordings

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by Danny Adair, Jan 24, 2002.

  1. Hello all,

    After Ray Parker hit a nerve yesterday, I was reminded that I need some woodshedding on my two feel. I either feel that I'm being offensively simplistic, playing a country line under a Sinatra tune, or just generally not swinging. Any suggestions on good players or recordings to check out for inspiration?

    As always, thanks for your help,

    Buster Williams on Kenny Barron's "Green Chimneys". The pocket is so solid on that record you won't believe it....Buster is KILLING on this disc.

    AnonyBass (Ray Brown?) on Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Johnny Mercer Songbook.

    Then, for something very different, check out Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones on the Trane disc with Johnny Hartman.
