DRUMS AROUND THE WORLD is a spirited, energetic album. The high point is probably "The Tribal Message," a piece Philly Joe Jones performs by himself. On this track, Jones develops his drum solo gradually, beginning first with spare rhythmic gestures. From here, he slowly builds in intensity, careful not to climax too quickly. The peak of the solo is marked by earsplitting cymbal crashes and grand, timpani-like tom-tom rolls.
The next track, "Cherokee" continues along the same vein. Here Jones's ferocious playing begins with a kind of "jungle" groove. This eventually gives way to the notoriously quick tempo of Ray Noble's composition. Blisteringly fast solos are offered here by trombonist Curtis Fuller, flutist Herbie Mann, trumpeter Lee Morgan, and others. Finally, legendary producer Orrin Keepnews adds a previously unheard rendition of the Benny Golson-penned "Stablemates" on this reissue. Apparently, this cut was lost or forgotten about for decades, and its inclusion satisfyingly completes this animated set of tunes.
