Jimmy Vincent-Longtime drummer for Louis Prima passed away y

Jimmy Vincent was the legendary long time drummer of Louis Prima's who created the mold for all who would follow. Louis would always sing his name at the beginning of "Sing, Sing, Sing" as he did on the classic Majestic recording…
"Jimmy Vincent…Jimmy Vin-Cent!!!"
Originally born James Faraci, he was like Louis Prima’s little Italian brother. They played golf together, had great fun together, and created some of the most important music of all time together. Louis and Jimmy have been reunited and are together again making beautiful music today.

Glad I got to spend a weekend with him at his daughter's house in San Diego last year..It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity hanging out with a true legend! Very sad day for me

James Vincent Faraci-June 30,1923 - April 15,2005 R.I.P.
Ed and his family will always be in our thoughts...R.I.P.
