Tim Jackson is the best all around drummer I have ever seen! No wonder he has won the chapionship for tenor drums 3 years in a row.

Steve Gadd is a great drummer! he was in a drum corps can't remember which one. Cobham was in Skyliners from NY.

Great info Huck, I find myself listening to a few more drum solo's since this thread. If any one has seen Chuck Mangione, alive on CD let me know this is a great recording and my cassette is about shot, again that solo in ST. Thomas is great Gadd is a monster

According to Modern Drummer (yes I know, awards are trivial but I don't care) the best drummers are Mike Portnoy and Vinnie Colaiuta, and trivial awards or not, I would agree, can't say I like the way DT's going musically but Vinnie's band are pretty awesome.

Here is a fine drum solo on its own. If you like drums, I strongly recommend you to check that out:

Nenê Drum Sola:

For those of you who didn't know it, Nenê is releasing his new CD "Sudeste" (independently) next august, and in celebration for the end of the production, presents Abracadabra-br's friends with the track Solo de Bateria, off the forementioned album. Unreleased, do not miss it !

My very first concert was in 1970 and it was Buddy Rich but...the guy who opened for him really blew my mind.

Aierto!

That guy was a mind blower to see at the age of 8!

all you guys seem to be familiar with are rock or jazz drummers who go crazy while soloing in a song or who wanna freak out with their jazz shit.

There are, then, drummers who have a more creative approach to drumming, regarded as more in the avant-garde genre usually. You people who don't like drum solos should listen to them.

Ches Smith
Glenn Kotche
Chris Cutler
to give sample names

some other greats
Evan Schiller
Rob Pumpelly
Scott Amendola
Weasel Walter


Kotche is excellent. His solo percussion stuff is definitely worth attention. There's even a YouTube video where he does a rendition of Steve Reich's "Clapping Music" entirely on his own! Really cool. And Chris Cutler: what can I say? He definitely transcended the usual prog/jazz-rock trappings and became an interesting avant-garde drummer.

Bill Ward - "Rat Salad", motherfuckers.

Bruford is/was the greatest rock drummer. And the great thing was he didn't(in the '70s) do the standard arena rock thing - where the band stops and the drummer goes off for 5 minutes :roll: . Group improvisation is where it was at with him.
The double trio lineup of KC is the best band ever with two drummers. I like that they made a point in the '90s NOT to sound like the Allman Bros. or any jamband. "Prism" is an example.

Michael Shrive playing "Kyoto" with Santana

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLk4D-MzVEU

I love how he is using those flam accents around the 3 min mark.

Definitely one of the most influencial solo's for me growing up!

I really like the drum break on Yes' Ritual. It's not a solo, Alan White is on kit, Chris Squire is on tympani, Steve Howe and Jon Anderson are on percussion and Rick Wakeman makes a bunch of sound effects on his keyboards.

I don't mind a drum solo but I like them good and concise. Like Keith Moon said, "Long drum solos are boring."

Kofi Baker ain't too bad. (Ginger's son).

I was lucky enough to jam with him at length
in the early 1990's, before he went to LA.

He was amazing even then.
He has a sense of humour too.

Nothing about a drum solo - no combination of bangs at any speed for any amount of time - can outdo a moment of fully arranged music. The classic rock drum solos are all doing the same thing anyway; at some point, he'll go fast and people will woo.

But I'm talking in black and white...I'm not going to deny the awesomeness of a perfectly timed drum solo like Terry's in Baby Snakes. The timing, the context, the audacity - it's awesome.

In other words, a drum solo by itself is an unfinished project.

yo Lumpy,

I've got a bunch of Kroumata Percussion Ensemble...they're great


memorable drum solos for me...

Terry's solo at the FZ/OZ concert (was much more exciting live)

Terry's solo show at the Enmore in the late 90's...awesome

Percussion duel in the middle of the Andreas Vollenveider concert at
Sydney Town Hall

Mike Mangini solo with Steve Vai at Selina's 2000

Mark Kennedy's solo's with Ayers Rock (Aussie band) in the 70's

Speaking as a former drummer, I can honestly say that I was probably the world's worst soloist. If a solo doesn't have some sort of groove or pulse I get a tad bored.

Dunbar's solo on "Waka/Jawaka" remains my very favorite to have appeared on FZ's releases. My favorite drummer is Vinnie, but Aynsley's solo has a great feel and just the right amount of tension that I like to hear in a solo.

BTW: Aynsley has some great personal FZ/MOI pics on his website:

I'm not a fan of drum solos, unless they're well integrated into a song or composition and don't get excessively big. There's ONE drum solo I love, and that's the Black Page, but that's got tuned percussion and it's a constructed thing.

It all depends, if it's an improv thing it's gotta be totally unpredictable and exciting. I think Zappa knew how to do that with his drummers.

kool. yeah, they are really good. saw them live once, and it was awesome.

they have performed 'the black page', 'don't you ever wash that thing', 'the eric dolphy memorial barbeque' and 'inca roads.' Unfortunately, the performances have not been released on cd.
