Re: Louie Bellson and Duke Ellington

Sorry, I accidentally got rid of the link when I was typing. I had my insert key on and didn't realize I typed right over the link! Oh, well! It's there now!

Louie Bellson and Duke Ellington

Since yesterday was the birthday of the great Duke Ellington, I figured I would post this video, an interview with Louie Bellson about his time playing with Duke, and a great 4 minute clip at the end...

Re: Gene Krupa - What's The Big Deal?

Looking at your profile I can see that you're 14, and can understand why you would feel this way. Especially if you haven't been playing for long. As sticks4drums said, you have to take the time...

Re: For the jazzers...some recommendations please.

I saw you mentioned Dizzy, so I wanted to ask if you own any Charlie Parker. Parker, Gillespie, and Max Roach were all major players in the development of bebop. I'd recommend getting "The Savoy and...

Re: Sorry Guys, Cindy is taken...

Can you post the links to these videos? I find it interesting that he got George Benson fired up since I've always heard that Benson is a very nice guy.

Re: Best blues drummers

I must also add that I really enjoyed Derek Roddy's blues playing.

Re: Best blues drummers

I have to go with Sam Lay for sure. That first album by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band is one of my all-time favorite albums, no matter what genre.

Indeed. That duo of him and Steve Smith doing "Salt Peanuts" is just killer.

Re: Your favorite brush song/player

Man, just too many to choose from. I guess my favorite would be Louie Bellson, with Max Roach being a close second. Others I really enjoy are: Buddy Rich, Tony Williams, Steve Smith, Elvin Jones,...

Re: Music Myths

Indeed, these are the kind of discussions I come here for. It's great to hear all the differing viewpoints and have everybody put in their own 2 cents on it.

Re: Music Myths

See, but that's the thing. Why would we all have to agree on who was the "one best drummer"? Can we not therefor, use the term better because in order to do so we all must agree?

Of course a band...

I'm not arguing that subjectivity doesn't play a role. I just don't like the "it's ALL subjective". To say that it isn't ALL subjective doesn't mean that your saying that it's all objective. They...

True, but I'm not arguing that. What I am arguing is that I don't like the view that no musician is better than another with the defense of an "it's all subjective" argument. Some musicians ARE...

Re: Music Myths

Lol. Didn't realize there was a knock-down, drag-out debate on that before. We've had the same topic on the sax forum where I'm a member, and it was a very civil debate.
