When I interviewed Joey Altruda in 2006, I was very impressed with the laundry list of musical legends the man has worked with… Ernest Ranglin, Plas Johnson and especially Roland Alphonso. So it’s no surprise how excited I got when I discovered that there is a TON of live JWJ material on YouTube, including a bunch of sets featuring Alphonso himself.
If you’ve never seen Alphonso or Altruda live, do yourself a favor and check this sound:
Most of these videos have been uploaded by Jump With Joey drummer and co-founder, Willie McNeil. Here’s a link to all of the JWJ videos that feature Roland Alphonso, 24 clips in all. [YouTube]
