Drummer - Rick Frank
My step-mother gave me my first jazz record – “Benny Goodman, live at the Brussels World Fair” which had Roy Burns on Drums. She also gave me one of her records, “Oscar Peterson: A Portrait of Frank Sinatra” with Ed Thigpen on drums. I started out listening to Dixieland jazz, and worked my way up through the various styles as my interests broadened over time.
