Drummers like Keltner seem to be the favorite of everyone except the other drummers.

He's one of those that makes your music shine, without shining the light on himself (unless you know what it's all about)...and makes the other musicians sound really good.

Other drummers with that quality would be Tony Thompson, Paul Leim, Jamie Oldaker, John Robinson, Burleigh Drummond, Curt Bisquera etc...
Drummers that make other musicians really want to play with them...and make them first call for producers ;o)

dude plays for the song....(and plays with everybody!)

off the top of my head,
early on:
Mad Dogs and Englishmen - Joe Cocker
All Things Must Pass - George Harrison
Concert for Bangladesh - George Harrison

also for some later, unique sounding drumming try:
Ry Cooder - My Name is Buddy

I've always been partial to his work with the Traveling Wilburys. He was also on "Dream Waver" by Gary Wright.

Jim is awesome. I met him at Pro Drum once, he was very nice to me too. The man definitely does not have to 'sell himself' to anybody.

He seems to be using that kit I asked about in my first post a lot.
Check these vids:

It is not a DW kit. Anyone who knows what it might be? Craviotto? C&C?

For those who are interested, there's a new interview in DrumScene (Australian drum magazine) this month. Here's the teaser from their site:

Nicely said. I can't think of too many who play with his authority and calm. Agree with Gvda about Josie - I keep playing along and totally given up on getting his feel and many of the embellishments. Much harder than it sounds.

Keltner is a MONSTER !!! Awesome groove , inspired fills, fits the song not his ego. I've read there was a time when if you wanted to hire Ry Cooder, you had to hire Keltner too. Cooder wouldn't do the gig without him.

It might be a C&C or a Gretsch New Classics... my guess.

Check out some of his work with Keb Mo'.

Jim is superb, and tasteful. Met him at NAMM in 2008, and he was very charming. Funnily enough, there was an Italian gentleman who confused him for Ringo!!!! Jim did not say a word, not to take the piss but rather to not disappoint the guy.
