Ed Thigpen

Jazz Library pays tribute to the drummer Ed Thigpen who died in January. He was such a consummate percussionist that he was known as "Mr Taste". A lynch-pin of the bands of Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and Oscar Peterson, Thigpen joined Alyn Shipton during one of his last visits to Britain to select the recorded highlights of his career.
