Summary, etc.:
People in the know say that Al Foster was the only true friend Miles Davis ever had. Here's what the Prince of Silence wrote about him: "for what i wanted in a drummer, Al had all of it. He knocked me out because he had such a groove. That was the kind of thing I was looking for. Al could set it up for everybody else to play off and just keep the groove going forever. As a member of Miles's band for thirteen years, Al also shared his instrumental mastery & rhythmic chops with pianist Bill Evans, Dexter Gordon, Chick Corea, George Benson, Wayne Shorter -- just to mention only a handful of the jazz giants he performed with... In 2007, it was great honor for the New Morning to welcome Al's stellar Quintet featuring pianists Aaron Goldberg and George Colligan, saxophonist Eli Degibri, Bassist Doug Weiss and trumpeter Eddie Henderson. To his innumerable fans, there is no doubt that very few musicians are as totally synonymous with the highest standard in jazz & groove today as is Al Foster!
