A consummate accompanist, unerring timekeeper, outstanding soloist and dynamic leader in his own right, revered drummer Jimmy Cobb showcases his inimitable touch on ballads and his irrepressibly swinging ride cymbal pulse on Remembering U. Accompanied by his working trio of Japanese pianist Tadataka Unno and Italian bassist Paolo Benedettini, Cobb’s latest stands as a tribute to those people who have been a part of his long journey in jazz and are no longer with us. Special guests include tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson and the late trumpeter Roy Hargrove in one of his last studio sessions. The recording also marks the final session of legendary engineer Rudy Van Gelder, who presided over classic sessions for the Blue Note, Prestige and Impulse! labels. (Cobb remembers playing on a Van Gelder session in the mid 1950s when the fledgling engineer was operating out of his parents home in Hackensack, New Jersey.)  On Remembering U, 2009 NEA Jazz Masters Award winner Cobb proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that, at age 90, he is indeed still swinging after all these years.
