RIP Johnny Otis

Drummer and bandleader Johnny Otis died January 17 aged 90. Although remembered mainly for Rock amd Roll hits such as Willie and the Hand Jive his roots were in jazz as this version of Harlem Nocturne indicates.
Otis gave gave Etta James her big break and, ironically, Etta died yesterday.
Rest in peace.
