Cozy Cole

Cozy Cole is considered to be one of the most perfect drummers jazz has produced, possessing an incomparably solid tempo with dreamy clearness and unstoppable power!

William Randolph “Cozy” Cole,was a life-long student of the drums, studying at Julliard in the mid-1940s,and with the New York Philharmonic's Saul Goodman.

Most of his long career was as a sideman for such leaders as; Willie Bryant, Cab Calloway, Lionel Hampton and Louis Armstrong. Even before these, Cozy had played with Benny Carter's first (and un-successful) band. That band also had such un-known names as Teddy Wilson (piano); Chu Berry (tenor sax) and a young trombonist named Dickie Wells.
