“Please call me James.” said Mr. Cobb when he played with pianist Martin Sasse & bassist Henning Gailing in Cologne on November 20, 2008.
It was a wonderful evening; James played as sensitively, and as solidly swinging as ever; alas, only a few of the young local drummers made it to the Old Pawnshop (Altes Pfandhaus) in Cologne’s South-End.
