Default best drum solo or recording?

Why should the guitarists be the only one recognized? Let's hear about your favorite drummer, drum solo, or outstanding drum recordings...

Favorite solo: Dave Weckl and Steve Gadd- title track to Weckl's cd "Master Plan". Both drummers playing on one track, alternating solos, panned slightly left and right. Not the best recording- completely overproduced, as are most of Dave's recordings, but great playing.

Anything by Vinnie Colaiuta...

What about KODO.
Way different than Dave Weckl and Steve Gadd !
If you ever will have opportunity, you should hear them in live !!!

Best regards,

If i would have to pick,
well, probably Max Roachs drum solo on "Blue Seven" on Sonny Rollins' "Saxophone Colossus" album.

But i refuse to pick, i say, Max Roach, no matter which solo. Anything to recorded to gether with Clifford Brown stands out but that does not mean he did not develop his skills further. Second favourite is Art Blakey, 3rd place is shared between Elvin Jones and Rashied Ali on Coltrane recordings.

I don´t hear much music with special drums or drummers in.
But not long ago i ordered a record from Dream Theater (metropolis..2)

Great album for sure, and the drummer of this band is something special.
His name is Mike Portnoy.

The best drum solo that I've heard or maybe it's just my favourite is from a direct to disk album that I bought in the mid 80's from a group called fm the album was called headroom. It was kinda like a rock fusion thing that they did DD.

Default The Sheffield Drum record of course

Direct cut vinyl disc - great sound, fine drumming but poor value.
One 7:11 solo from Jim Keltner and one 6:23 solo from Ron Tutt 'filling' both sides of a 33.3 LP!

I think Sheffield issued it on CD - must have added a helluva filler.

I just got "Goverment mule live...with a little help from our freinds". Thorazine shuffle features a drummer name sounds like "Matt Apps". My brother is a drummer and I have long been burned out on drum solos, but this one is excellent.
regards, Jason
