After Louis Hayes left Horace Silver late in 1959, he and Sam Jones became one of the finest bass-and-drums teams of the '60s--first with Cannonball Adderley (1959-65), then with Oscar Peterson (1965-67).

Bass-and-drums hook-ups are rarely discussed except by musicians, who value them highly. Other great pairings of that decade included Israel Crosby and Vernel Fournier, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, Eugene Wright and Joe Morello, Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, Ron Carter and Tony Williams, Richard Davis and Mel Lewis, Richard Davis and Alan Dawson, Bob Cranshaw and Mickey Roker, and Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette.
