Good afternoon, happy Thursday, and welcome to The Afternoon Show with the delightful Evie! Thank you for listening! -- Idris Muhammad "was born Leo Morris on Nov. 13, 1939, in New Orleans. His father played banjo, and four of his siblings were drummers. Naturally drawn to the sound of Mardi Gras parade bands, he found his calling with no formal training. He was 15 when he played on Art Neville and the Hawketts’ enduring 1954 recording of “Mardi Gras Mambo,” and not much older when he appeared on Fats Domino’s hit version of 'Blueberry Hill.'” Read an obituary of this legendary musician who died at age 74 in 2014: https://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/09/arts/music/idris-muhammad-drummer-whose-beat-still-echoes-dies-at-74.html
