Drummerworld: Mitch Mitchell

Mitch Mitchell. Mitchell was the world’s first hard-rocking drummer with jazzy chops, and perhaps the most influential of the ’60s. His work with Jimi Hendrix threw every rock and roll drummer for a loop. Anchored by bassist Noel Redding’s steady hand, Mitchell successfully blended the improvisational freedom of jazz drumming with the speed, power and flash of rock. In the process, he developed a unique chemistry with Hendrix’s unprecedented guitar playing that has never been equaled.
