I'd argue it would take quite a bit of practice to play that solo. Talent would vary that amount of practice, but it's certainly not a prerequisite to play like that. You need talent to be somebody like Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd etc, but if you just want to play genre staples with good power and speed then it's really all just practice.
