Even though it’s not listed in the recording credits, if you listen closely, you can hear the “swishing” and tapping of high hat cymbols underneath the rhythm. Wish I knew who was sitting in on the session.

One thought on ““I Like To Riff” – King Cole Trio (1941)

  1. Cole recorded this song twice, but there seems to be a discrepancy regarding the date of the other recording (1939 or Nov. 1941). The drummer is Lee Young, as listed on Savoy 600 (the other record) and in Brian Rust’s JAZZ RECORDS.
