I was privileged to see Keith playing with Steely Dan and with Sting. His technique and musicality are both outstanding. he was truly inspiring at the Steely Dan show.

The man is a beast. I love his technique. I don't know how he does it. He defintely stands out from a lot of drummers. Check these videos out if you haven't already.

keith's playing all tracks on steely dan's last album 'everything must go'. if i'm not mistaken, i think he's the first drummer to play all tracks on a dan album. he also did some tracks on '2 against nature'.

i saw keith with sting earlier this year and he was mindblowing.
he's also on some of wayne krantz's records and they're really worth checking out.... 'greenwich mean time' is pretty awesome.

Hi this is my first post on the forum. I just got back from vacation to Israel and NYC. While i was in NYC, i went to the 55 Bar to see Wayne Krantz play. That night it was Wayne Krantz, Keith Carlock, and Anthony Jackson. It was by far the best set ive heard them play yet. I got to talk with Keith for a while and i learned that he and i share the same first name, Brian. So his real name is Brian Carlock. I was very surprised to learn that he plays the same bass pedal as i, a dw 9000. Anyway, it was the best set ive heard from Wayne yet so if any of you are fans, i would reccomend buying the June 30th set as it is only $5. Here are some pictures

I've listen to them - they are great. Keith's tecnique i amazing. It seems that he is left-handed - all those ghost notes on the snare drum. There are some really good shots of him playing at his website www.keithcarlock.com. His style reminds much of Bonham - they are both very powerful and have very open resonant drum sound. You should also check out Ari Hoenig - he is even more mind blowing.

Ahhh...Ari. You sir, have excellent taste.


Carlock is a groove MOSTER. He can lay down such a heavy groove and he's got plenty of chops. He's on his way to building an even more impressive resume' than he already has.

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I find his playing to be intoxicating...I had the opportunity to hear him play last week and I found him to be totally "mind blowing." I've watched a lot of drummers, but Keith plays with such passion. I wish him the best! Susan

Elvin4ever 11-14-2005 05:02 AM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I saw him at a clinic this past week. What a fine, fine player. His clinic chops have also come a long way since his North Texas days. He seems much more relaxed with the drummer crowd.

SusanCarter 11-14-2005 01:28 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
Yes, he is very relaxed and looks like he is enjoyng playing. He put on a great clinic...which one did you attend?

Foog 11-14-2005 02:50 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
i dunno...he's a great player and everything. but no one can replace gadd in steely dan for me.

SusanCarter 11-15-2005 05:13 AM

Re: Keith Carlock v. Steve Gadd
 
Hey, Keith isn't trying to replace anyone, in fact, Gadd is one of his favorites too...of course, I like Keltner and Gordon. Keith has a style of his own...like all the greats before him. Katy Lied is my favorite..;) Isn't that Jeff P.?

Paul Quin 11-16-2005 11:30 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I saw Keith at the Orlando clinic and found him to be thoroughly inspiring. I talked with Billy Ashbaugh afterwards and he said the same thing. Keith has great musicality and great technique. He has a very fluid way of playing and his ability to relax his grip and open his playing leaves room for some truly great grooves and chops.

His question and answer session revealed a humility and sense of humor which only those who are really confident in their ability can project. he is a great player and he deserves the respect due to someone who has landed the types of gigs he has. In truth, I hate meeting the "artist" at events like this because the room for conversation is so stilted - "uh . . . that was great" seems to be the best thing to say but seems so passe. But that is probably just me. Ddespite the subjective awkwardness, Keith came across as a nice, genuine guy, in love with his art, approachable yet infinitely talented.

Re: Keith Carlock
 
The guy's got it goin' on. Great groove, touch and feel. Not to mention enough chops to keep anyone happy. I don't see how see how he can play with his drums tilted like that though. Not for me. But hey, different strokes for different folks. A great young drummer.

this guy stands out in solos. you described his playing exactly. the cool thing is that he's not trying to show off his chops, he's just playing musicially by himself.

theduke86 11-18-2005 06:19 AM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I always really like how his playing is just a little behind the beat. Gives the music a cool groove. Kinda like Gadd in that way. His groove playing, anyways.

Laurent 11-18-2005 09:30 AM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I had the pleasure to see him live with The Blues Brothers in Montreux about 5 years ago. I remember thinking that the band was not very hot and kind of a disappointment to me but that the drummer was really hot. And it seems I was right. Keith really held the band together and saved it on what might have been a night off for TBB. He was so much into the music and grooved like crazy.

For whatever reasons I seem to not be that much into NY drummers with the exception of Gadd, Billy Ward, Chris Parker, Anton Fig and now Keith Carlock.

Keith has the potential to become one of the greats.

SusanCarter 12-29-2005 03:54 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I had the oppportunity to catch Keith playing in NY a few weeks ago...he is good for the soul...especially, after evacuating Katrina...I know he would be welcomed at Jazz Fest this year or any other year...he has the New Orleans' style.....quite funky and down right soulful..

Another North Texas stand-out I might add ;-)

Re: Keith Carlock
 
My guitarist buddy just bought Oz Noy's "HA!" album with Keith Carlock and Anton Fig on it....and wow. I mean WOW. Keith Carlock has some of the funkiest, coolest grooves out there. They're version of Say What ?! is totally rockin.

Pick up this CD if you can!

Carlock is slowly becoming one of my favorite new players out there!

RythmPoint 03-20-2006 05:33 AM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
What can i say... I just saw the MD festival DVD's and would like to input that Carlock was somenthing that i did not expect.... Gotta Lov Da Groove boy, and hes definetly showing some lov. i think its satisfiying to see someone with his aproach to drum soloing... a watching the guy rocking that wacky set up is just the begining part of how entertaining his performances can be as well as mind expanding. MAD Props Keith!!! another drummer for me to disect HAHA!!!!

Paul Quin 03-23-2006 03:14 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I just bought "Morph the Cat" - the latest offering from Donald Fagen. The grooves on this CD are fantastic. A lesson in taste and proficiency!! This guy is truly inspirational. Another one who understands that sometimes it's not what you play but what you leave out.

I could do research and probably find out on my own, but instead I'm going to be lazy and ask you guys. :p

Did Keith record the song "Josie" off of the album Aja with Steely Dan?

Hehe, Keith was probably five years old when that song was recorded!!!

That was Steve Gadd on the original recording, and if you've heard the live version, then that is Dennis Chambers.

Seems like a pretty decent lineup of drummers, especially when you throw in Jeff Porcaro and Bernhard Purdie.

Re: Keith Carlock
 
the monster solo on his page on drummerworld is simply astonishing. my jaw was on the floor for the whole length. i would like to hear more of his drumming

I'm pretty sure that's not Gadd on the original. From memory (before my CD collection got stolen) that's maybe Jim Keltner? I know it's Purdie on Home At Last and Gadd on Aja... but I'm almost certain it's not Gadd on Josie.

Or I could just be making a fool of myself.

Edit: Or Rick Marotta. I'm leaning that way now, but I'd really have to check.

Re: Keith Carlock
 
Finn gets the prize. It was Jim Keltner on Josie. There were 6 different drummers on the album Aja.

Carlock With Krantz
 
I first saw Keith Carlock with Wayne Krantz (best guitarist out there) and Tim Lefebvre (WK3) at the 55 Bar in the Village... incredible band improvisation.. a whole new level. Try to get to hear some of this stuff... Check out WWW.waynekrantz.com for downloads and CD's.

Stu_Strib 03-31-2006 03:02 PM

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I thought he was asking about the song Aja too. That would be Steve Gadd. Me read fast brain go slow.

yves 03-31-2006 03:02 PM

Re: Carlock With Krantz
 
Yes.... I'm a big fan of Wayne Krantz's stuff....

You can purchase/download their sets @:
www.livekrantz.com

There are some pretty impressive improv performances.

Re: Keith Carlock
 
I can only repeat whats already been said. Very unique, different, and very musical. I watched his videos and found myself moving in my chair the way he was. It is different than what is grabing drummers attention nowadays. SINGLE pedal not a thousand miles an hour and just fun to watch and hear.

So it's Jim Keltner, eh?

Well the reason I asked this, is because I'm VERY impressed with the drumming in Josie. In this song, I love how he sits behind the band and simply grooves with FINESSE, yet still shows how technically sound he is by just adding in those subtle things. For instance, he uses ghost notes..or accents on the hats in appropriate places in the song. He doesn't overplay. Impressive, I tell you! He does the job of keeping the song going...and yet still lets the song breathe. VERY SOLID DRUMMING! I love this aspect. Jim Keltner is a big influence of mine now haha... And I know that you guys have an appreciation for this kind of drumming too.

Thanks for saving me the time of looking it up :p... Can you guys tell me of any other drummers or songs that have this same kind of drumming?
