Brilliant technical jazz drummer with phenomenal career, including collaboration with genre’s top names and an unlikely rock’n’roll era hit. Lyrical is a word sometimes used to describe Cozy Cole’s drumming style because his melodious technique goes far beyond mere beat-keeping. The recordings that appeared under his name in the late ’50s and ’60s are mostly big-band jazz instrumentals that emphasize the drums. Cole is cited as an influence by many contemporary rock drummers, including Cozy Powell, who took his nickname “Cozy” from Cole.
