Default Re: Jazz numbers with tom tom beats

From Cozy Cole, Topsy part 1 and 2 are great tracks with heavy tom beats. He has another one on his version of Habanera. But then again, there are a number of tracks he has with tom tom beats in an effort to "duplicate" his big hit with Topsy, so checking him out in general would be a good idea.

Uh from Gene Krupa, besides Sing Sing Sing, he's gotta a number called "Jungle Drums" that has tom tom beats. So does Meddle my Minor, as well as a few others that have extended tom tom intros but thats it.. The beginning part of Evolution (Buddy and Gene) has heavy tom action for 2+ minutes.

The original Big Noise from Winnetka is played on two toms to mimic the bass part of the song, listen to Ray Bauduc or watch the video of him and Bobby Haggart. However Ray varies it after the intro whistle part.

Those are some "different" ones I could throw in looking at my playlist.
