I don't know about jazz drummers that much, or know more than a handful but Jazz styled percussion is my favorite. I was wondering who yr favorite jazz drumers were.

han bennink
chris corsano's work with paul flaherty and others qualify him.
gene krupa
billy cobham
elvin jones
william winant
tom surgal (although surgal and winant can be seen as "avant garde" more than jazz)

can't think of more right now.

I don't know much about jazz, but I'd like to get into it more.

I have a Miles Davis and Coltrane CD, but nothing else. I also have my alram clock set to a jazz station because there are no other good stations.

10

Elvin Jones
Tony Williams
Max Roach
Art Blakey
Dannie Richmond
Jorge Rossy
Jack De Johnette
Rashied Ali
Han Bennink
Roy Haynes/Philly Jo Jones

It's really impossible to say whether Elvin is better than Tony and whether Max is better than Art.

Rashied Ali is my fave.

Tony Oxley should be mentioned here.

Kevin Corcoran is a local dude that melts my face off.

More like "death-jazz", but both drummers in the band Ettrick are excellent, especially Jacob Heule (the more jazzy of the two drummers).

Philly Jo Jones...you know, I think he's around Roy Haynes level. He's great.

That one is mainly a blues, but PJ really cooks.

The thing about Rashied is that his inspirations are Art and Philly Joe, but he adds that multi-tonal avant garde thing into the mix and of course played on Coltrane's later in-your-face material. For some of those reasons, I put him above Bennink, who to me is also head and shoulders, along with Ali, above the rest of any the more 'free' drummers.

Anyone heard Milford Grave's solo outing on Tzadik? That was mightily impressive.

Roy Haynes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roy Owen Haynes (born March 13, 1925) is a jazzdrummer
Haynes was born in Boston, Massachusetts and began his full time professional career in 1945. From 1947 to 1949 he worked with Lester Young, and from 1949 to 1952 was a member of the Charlie Parker Quintet. He also recorded at the time with Bud Powell, Wardell Gray, and Stan Getz. From 1953 to 1958 he toured with Sarah Vaughan.
Haynes is one of the most recorded drummers in jazz and in his over 60-year career has played in a wide range of styles ranging from swing to avant-garde jazz. In addition to being a sideman, some feel that Haynes is one of the most original musicians in jazz history. He has a highly expressive, personal style ("Snap Crackle" was a nickname given him in the 1950's) and is known to foster a deep engagement in his bandmates, listening and supporting and lifting the whole band rhythmically and sonically.
He is equally adept at gracefully backing a singer like Sarah Vaughan or in explosive interactions with the likes of John Coltrane, Chick Corea, Eric Dolphy, or Andrew Hill. He was inducted into the Down Beat Magazine Hall of Fame in 2004.
Haynes has recorded or performed with Gary Burton, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Henry Grimes, Christian McBride, Jackie McLean, Pat Metheny, Thelonious Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Art Pepper, Horace Tapscott and many others. He has also led his own groups, some performing under the name Hip Ensemble. His most recent recordings as a leader are The Roy Haynes Trio, Fountain of Youth and Where As (recorded live at the Artists' Quarter).
As of 2006, he continues to perform world-wide.
His son Graham is a cornetist and his grandson, Marcus Gilmore, is an up-and-coming jazz drummer.

---


In 2005, he received a best instrumental jazz album nomination for "Fountain of Youth," an album for which he is the drummer that was recorded at Birdland in New York City on December 4 & 5, 2003 when he was seventy-nine.






 




 



 


He is now eighty-one years old.
