60 years ago, of course, Cobb played on what wound up becoming the most indelible record in jazz history, Kind of Blue. This recording, with a band of Cobb's longtime collaborators - pianist Harold Mabern, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and bassist John Webber - pays tribute to that seminal album by proving that it's still not yet history. The 90-year-old drummer, after all, is as vital and thoughtful as he ever was as he swings through standards and contemporary compositions by his bandmates alike. The album's classic, rich swing was recorded with a casualness that recalls the kind of sessions Cobb was booked for during the music's heyday. "I let them pick the tunes," Cobb says of his bandmates, who chose from the wide array of songs in the Cobb's Mob repertoire while focusing on ones that they'd never recorded before. This I Dig of You required no rehearsal, and was recorded in just one session.
