I love Morello's playing. I think I'm bored by drum solos in general, but his work on Castillian Drums at Carnegie Hall with Brubeck is just awesome.

On a different note, does anyone know how Joe is riding on the snare drum in Bossa Nova USA on the Live at Carnegie Hall Album? Does he have his hands reversed for playing this song? Or is he riding on the snare drum with his left hand using traditional grip?

Steve

Regarding Bossa Nova USA on the Carnegie Hall album: I always thought Morello was playing the eight note pattern with his left hand and accenting with his right.

I've always wondered what exactly Joe's doing with his bass drum 1/4 of the way through this http://drummerworld.com/Videos/joemorello1963.html solo. Is that a double stroke or some ridiculous triple? It wouldn't surprise me - he's clearly doing something very rapid with the rebound.

Wow thats lucky that you got to go to a drum clinic of his. And now i that i think of it, John Bonham does seem to kinda play his solos like Morello, except its alot more heavy sounding. Pretty cool.

im thinking it might be some for of heel toe. Or this thing that Zoro does. Go to Zoros page and check out the clips, one of them has something to do with using the rebound of the pedal for another hit.

I was basically in disbelief while watching his technique videos Bernard recently posted. I yelled, "Honestly! I mean c'mon!" he really makes every other drummer look like a rookie. He'll play something faster I'll ever get it to in my entire like and simply say "M'kay?" I've always been a fan of Joe but after watching his technique videos I have to say that he may just be the greatest living drummer. He has better technique than all the fusion guys that I adore.

It's hard to know what to say about Joe that hasn't already been said. I know that when I first heard him I was just blown away. All the guys posting on this thread know what I mean. His touch, chops, the sound of his kit, the effortless way everything sounded so natural. His astounding bass drum technique....

I hope a lot of the younger guys check him out. He's one of a kind.

Joe Morello has been my favorite drummer ever since I was a little kid and found Brubeck's Time Out album in my old man's record collection and put in on the turntable.

His chops are incredible, he is a master of time, and he plays ever so muscially.

He's a ham too. In one of his educational DVD's he is demostrating how when keeping time the bass and hat etc. need to hit at the exact same time and not all sloppy and asynchrous like how his student Danny (Gottlieb) does it. LOL.

The '58 Newport Jazz CD listed on Amazon does not list Short'N Bread. I first heard it on the radio when I was a teenager back in a former British colony in the Indian Ocean.
Unfortunately although Brubeck and his original quartet played in that country during a national exhibition under the auspices of the US State dept I never got to see them because I was only into Dixieland jazz and could not appreciate mainstream jazz. Ironically, I attended that exhibition and was passing the "Greenhouse" with my two brothers when we could actually hear Joe Morello take one of his thundering solos!
I might add that a few years ago I attended the ceremony at Berklee College of Music's special event honoring Joe's musical contibutions which he attended and gave an exhibition of his drumming! I was also fortunate to see Dave Brubeck and his newer Quartet perform here in Boston on another occasion but i still very much regret missing seeing and hearing Brubeck's original quartet.
I would appreaciate as much details on the above recording as possible.

I just realized that Short/nin/Bread is actually on Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Gone With The Wind" CD which I had not accessed and listened to for quite awhile.

If you liked Shortin' Bread solo check out Deep In The Heart Of Texas solo on Southern Scene album by Brubeck. Morello is also the best brushes player I've ever heard.

My favorite Jazzer. His drumming makes my spine tingle, its so creative. Listening to Joe solo is like listening to good poetry. It's very lyrical and intense. Even though he is not known as a big solo guy, He is damn good at them. Most drum solos/breaks I hear feel like a pause in a song rather than a progression. Joe's solo's and breaks truly bring the song to another level. For example, my favorite drum solo;

http://youtube.com/watch?v=B0XED9VI2cg

This 1964 drum solo in the song "Sound of the Loop" is my favorite. It's incredibly musical. The intro is awesome aswell.

[Edit] also check out these drum breaks in Brubecks cover of "Take the A Train". Taste, personified.

I'm in the same boat. He's not just my favorite jazzer, but my favorite drummer of all time. I've been a huge Morello fan ever since I found a Brubeck recording in my old man's record collection when I was a kid. He's a technical wizard and everything he played was done in such a musical way, always what was just perfect for the tune.

I recently managed to finally complete my collection of Morello's educational materials. Picked up a copy of "Off the Record" on ebay. It's a 1966 book of transcripts of some of his solos from various recordings with the Brubeck quartet. It's very sweet. It starts with some basic reading exercises, then before each solo trascription is a series of exercises to help one with the ideas expressed in the actual solo.

Thanks for posting that like to the A-Train video. I hadn't seen that one yet. I love the move he does at about 9:24, dropping the stick down on the snare like that.

Joe Morello is amazing. Plain and simple. He's easily my favorite drummer of all time. His one-handed open rolls are an order of magnitude faster than my two-handed closed rolls. Hell, his bass rolls are faster than my two-handed buzz rolls. :| More importantly, he's a real musician. He knows the piece, he knows how the drums can best add to it, and he knows full well how to get those drums to do it.

I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but he has a series of instructional videos that you can get on Netflix. You can tell from his demeanor that he's a cool dude, and totally down to earth. That alone makes me like him a hundred times better than Buddy Rich.

My favorite without question. He's a huge inspiration to me. That said, I decided against making a topic about what I'm about to say, as I felt it not quite urgent enough to warrent an individual thread that already semi-exists. Anyway, I discovered, while trying to send him a personal message a little while back, that his site doesn't seem to exactly be optimally functional; I don't think that the contact system on the site actually work anymore. When you try to send a message, you are directed to a page that says the following: FormMail-Clone The system administrator has disabled this script. Now, I've searched, but I can't seem to find any other information on how to contact him. I'd really love to meet the man while he's still around, but I can't do that if I don't know how to find him! If anyone has any information regarding this, its divulgence is very greatly appreciated. :\

Thanks for that, I'll check it out.

If I may get back to the man himself, I found this video a while back, and, since then, he's been my biggest inspiration.

Mr. Morello is a lowly drummer with a great feel and technique. He is so natural, spontaneous, authentic player that has given so much to the drumming world.

Im enjoying this one: http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/joemorello1963.html

...just nice and simple! none of those 3-pedals, 10+ drums and 15+ cymbals in nowadays.

Thank you - Mr. Joe Morello!

RIP, Joe. Thanks for everything.

I'll have to ring up an old teacher of mine. He was in Stone's school at the same time as Joe and they kept in touch over the years.

Now, out to the woodshed to work through Master Studies.

One of my all time favourite drummers. I actually felt a sense of loss when I heard he died - probably because I've listened to him and enjoyed his playing for so long he'd become part of my life.

He had a good innings and may he rest in peace.

I need to post something meaningful in tribute to Joe Morello. He was a huge inspiration to me. Hell I even set my drums up similar to the way he did. He studied with George Lawrence Stone as did I, but not at the same time as Joe was quite a bit older. Joe's signature solo was done on Take Five with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, the all time most played and listened to tune in jazz history. I would submit that a big part of the appeal of that track can be attributed to Joe's solo. Joe was an amazing drummer and teacher. His eyes were weak, but he made up for it with his ears. Big ears. At a clinic he conducted at my high school in 1964 or 1965 he played Jingle Bells on his 13" tom tom changing the tone using his fingers to change the tension on the head and using one stick to play the notes. To prove it wasn't just a parlor trick, he asked the audience to name another simple tune and he duplicated the effort on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star impromtu. He knew how to swing and he taught us the importance of keeping track of the beat no matter what. He advocated doing this with the hi hat. The man could swing like crazy and he knew how to build a solo to a crescendo. Listen to his solo from the album "At Carnegie Hall" on Castillian Drums. He was always generous with his time. He was a great drummer and a nice guy. He lives on through his music and the many lives he touched in a long and productive life. God bless you Joe!

I just went to Wikipedia to check his tom and bass drum sizes, and found out he died over a month ago.

I always wanted to take lessons from him, but I don't live anywhere near where he did, plus I'm not good enough. But I would always look in the back of Modern Drummer for his ad just to see if he was taking students.

What a bummer. The guy was drumming like a kid at 82. I just figured he'd live forever.

Like Buddy, Joe could play like a machine. He would play an exercise slowly and then speed it up. OK, so you think he's going to speed up moderately. WRONG - the man would play the same exercise so fast that your head would spin. Incredible !!

All very tasteful playing and great fours. The next-to-last one is the kicker though, at 9:20. He did something similar on 'Just in Time' from "It's About Time". Brilliant use of punctuated silence out of nowhere.

Ive been a fan of Joes since i was a teenager and he is definitely one of my favorites. The melodies he plays in solos are incredible. My favorite is all of his drum breaks and solo on the studio recording of Nomad - just brilliance. Actually he sounds like he may have been one of John Bohnhams influences - the solo on Nomad starts very similiar to the original studio recording of Moby Dick. Morello's hands and brain were amazing... I think all those years of him playing violin at a very high level before he picked up the sticks help tremendously on the drum kit and at snare drum rudiments.

Been listening to Dave Brubeck for years and Joe's amazing drumming. In my mind he was pure genious and well ahead of his time. His sense of time and feel transcend any words I can come up with.

Joe was so cool. I love how he would play with silence and non-traditional playing. Here's a classic example from "Take the A Train":

Just 4 bars but so much fun. And the rest of the performance ain't bad either :-P

Like Buddy Rich, Joe Morello was an original. There are no others like him. Truly one of the greatest. Joe was incredibly fast, and accurate even in his later years.

I have fond memories of seeing his pictures in the Ludwig Drum Co. catalogs from the 60's. If Joe's picture wasn't in the catalog, it felt as though something was missing.
