Best of Idris Muhammad Playlist
He was eclectic in terms of his playing, he mixed the New Orleans sound, that sound of the street music, with jazz music and rock ‘n’ roll, and had all that intertwined. He tuned his drum to get the sound from the New Orleans street bands, the marching bands, and he’d get that kind of sound that would come from New Orleans. That’s why he was so sought after. He had the syncopation of New Orleans.
To celebrate the Legacy of New Orleans Funk & Jazz legend Idris Muhammed we’ve put together a playlist recognising some of our favourite Idris records.
