AL­BU­QUERQUE, N.M. — The last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of the Miles Davis “Kind of Blue’’ jazz al­bum is sched­uled to per­form in Al­bu­querque as part of the New Mex­ico Jazz Fes­ti­val. Per­cus­sion­ist Jimmy Cobb is slated to take part in a trib­ute to sax­o­phon­ist Dex­ter Gor­don at the Al­bu­querque Mu­seum to­day.

The 88-year-old drum­mer still per­forms with his band, Cobb’s Mob, and tours in­ter­na­tion­ally. Cobb was a drum­mer on the “Kind of Blue’’ jam ses­sion that also fea­tured Can­non­ball Ad­der­ley and John Coltrane. It is the best­selling jazz al­bum of all time.
