The creativity is the most revealing sign of that modernity. Both the contemporary manner of playing (Philly Joe Jones or Roy Haynes, Max Roach or Tony Williams) and the structures elaborated at the beginning of the century by Zutty Singleton, then Jo Jones and also the famous white drummers, such as Dave Tough or Gene Krupa, find their places in Robert Cordier’s style.

A specifie characteristic of Cordier’s playing is the African rhythmic element, which is an ineradicable mainspring.
