Although Marty could not reveal the actual cause of Jimmy Cobb’s death on the social media. but his fans all over the World have already started mourning and flooding their heart felt tributes on Facebook.
According to reports the late Kind Of Blue drummer, Jimmy Cobb was battling a medical issue two years ago.
Wilbur James Cobb was born in 1929 and grew up in Washington, D.C., where he bought his first drum set at age 13 with money earned from his job as a busboy at a drugstore lunch counter.
Jimmy was a highly adaptive jazz drummer and NEA Jazz Master.
He initially came to limelight in the hard bop era of the 1950’s, balancing a powerful, swinging style and a deep sensitivity for group dynamics.
Cobb first started as a sideman with Dinah Washington and Cannonball Adderley before gaining wide recognition as a member of Miles Davis’ group, playing on the classic 1959 album Kind of Blue.
When he left Davis, Cobb co-led a trio in the ’60s with pianist Wynton Kelly and bassist Paul Chambers, and over the years he has worked with such luminaries as Sarah Vaughan, Hank Jones, Ron Carter, David “Fathead” Newman, Nancy Wilson, Dave Holland, and many others.
While he did not record as a leader until late into his career, he has issued a handful of vibrant small-group sessions, including 2003’s Cobb’s Groove, 2007’s Cobb’s Corner, and 2014’s The Original Mob.
Cobb’s most famous work is on Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue (1959). He was the last surviving player from the session.
