Kenneth Clarke Spearman (January 9, 1914 – January 26, 1985), nicknamed Klook, was an American jazz drummer and bandleader. A major innovator of the bebop style of drumming, he pioneered the use of the Ride cymbal to keep time rather than the hi-hat, along with the use of the bass drum for irregular accents ("dropping bombs")

Kenny Clarke Format: Vinyl. This Kenny Clarke-led album is swinging hard bop that holds it own against anything Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers were recording during this period - or after. In fact I cannot help but think that the first track, Volcano, is an homage to Blakey since his nickname was "The Volcano" because of his explosive playing. The reason I think this is Clarke is busy on the drums. He is normally a genius in the pocket, but some of the press rolls on that track inspired me to pause the album and jump on my drum kit for intense practice. It's a shame that there are.

Europeans outnumber Americans on all three sessions making up the album, which is as assured and enduring as any which came out of the US at the time. In his biography, Klook: The Story Of Kenny Clarke (Quartet, 1990), author Mike Hennessey quotes the composer Steve Reich: "(Clarke) had an extraordinary sense of time, but wasn't a virtuoso.
