This is for sure a toughy...

Death - Symbolic. I think this album further pushed the idea of extreme drumming. As a result, I'd say its up there with the best.

p.s. - Gene Hoglan is a metal drumming God.

Default Re: Best drumming album of all time?

i would have to go with boss tenor by gene ammons, drumming by arthur taylor, congas by ray barretto...everything is so perfect

also, its not on an album yet, but my dads band plays a song called blackjack in which the drumming is really great...actually the drumming in all the songs my dads band plays is great...wish i could invent such great stuff like the drummer from my dads band does..

I think the best drumming albums of all time are probably 2112: Rush and Moving Pictures.......unless you count there live albums then there clearly better drumming including the solos

Good call.

Is anyone familiar with Weather Report's album "Night Passage." Great music. Peter Erskine on drums, Robert Thomas, Jr. on hand percussion really work great together with Jaco P. What a (now) classic sound.

There was an album that Louie Bellson and Billy Cobham did together. I think it was called "Matterhorn". I don't even know if it was released as a CD, Man that was a cool album.

311!!!!!!!!!

A Sexton lover eh Jamsjr?

I have to admit..Chad Sexton and 311 were a gigantic influence for me growing up...I still remember the Summer of 94 when i first heard them...I was only 14 and sitting in a lawnchair with my buddies on the deck just listening to music while taking the random hit of grass...Ohhhh those were the days! Then my buddy breaks out a new C.D. his older brother had...It was called "Music" by 311...We were BLOWN AWAY!!!!!! You have to take in cosideration the year this C.D. came out in (93)...We had heard nothing like it back then...In my opinion (in all seriousness) this is one of the greatest C.D.'s ever made in Rock History...Every single song kicks ass and nobody even knew who they were...Chad Sexton really shows off some nice chops and killer groove...While I'm not into them as much as i used to be, that C.D. (along with grassroots and the self titled) will always hold a special place in my heart...I think their last good C.D. was Sound System...

Seriously anyone who has not heard 311's 1st C.D. called "Music" GO AND BUY IT!!!!!!! Soooooooooo Goooood!!!!!!!

Default Top Drumming Album of "All Time"

Note: No, don't list your favorite 10, 20, 100 albums. Butch up and make a choice. JUST ONE - your personal choice of the greatest drumming album ever.

There's a lot of great ones out there. It's a tough choice but if I have to pick one it's gotta be the debut album of:

Blood, Sweat & Tears with the great Bobby Columby on drums. An entire album of some of best chops, creativity and taste on drum kit ever recorded. JMHO.

I'm very fond of the drumming on Steely Dan's Gaucho. This poll is too broad though, maybe we could somehow narrow down the albums by genre or decade. DECADE, YES, We should cut up the things by decade.

Default Re: Best drumming album of all time?

Too hard to pick just one. So, a random one that seems appropriate here:

"Sol Niger Within" by Fredrik Thordendal, with Morgen Agren on drums. Music similar to Meshuggah (hey, it's their guitarist) but from the other side of the fence - Meshuggah around the era of DEI = extreme metal band plays Alan Holdsworth-esque fusion. Sol Niger Within = Alan Holdsworth plays extreme metal. I'd be surprised if most people can even transcribe this stuff, let alone play it. If you only get one track, get "Bouncing in a bottomless pit". The whole album is one song, but this is probably the ludicrous chops highlight.

Other options? Well, that's a bit of a chops fest and I'm not really a choppy guy at heart. So:

Tori Amos - From The Choirgirl Hotel (Matt Chamberlain), for taste, clever use of a studio, awsome tone and great chops.

Jeff Buckley - Grace (Matt Johnson). For similar reasons, but all live instead of using loops and drum machines.

DJ Shadow - In Tune and On Time. Decks! And he's still kicking our asses! Listen and learn.

Mr Bungle - California (William Winant & Danny Heifetz, IIRC). Really good creative use of a drummer and percussionist working together in a band, constantly turning on a dime and doing a great job of supporting some of the weirdest pop songs you'll ever hear.

Hank Mobley - Soul Station (Art Blakey), just to remind you what our job is and how much fun it can be just to do that and forget about showing off entirely!

Bar Kokhba - Bar Kokhba (Kenny Wollensen). Only has drums on one track IIRC, but that track has one of only maybe five good drum solos ever. Oh yeah, wait for the flames :)

Symphony X - V-The Mythology Suite (Jason Rullo is an extremely underrated drummer)

Karmakanic - Wheel of Life (Zoltan Czörsz needs to be heard by every drummer interested in a mix of Dave Weckl and Nick D`Virgilio.
Truly amazing drumming on this album. A MUST HAVE)

Grace by Jeff Buckley. Nothing fast or technical, just a classic example of laying down cool grooves that complement and enhance the song.

Matt Johnson is a beast. The guy has excellent independence. Grace is definitely one of the best albums to come out of the 1990's

Well for me these are IT:

1) Trio Music / Chick Corea (Roy Haynes...)

2) Emergency / The Tony Williams Lifetime (Tony...the sound's not that good, but the drumming with the music is just mounstruos)

3) The Leprechaun by Chic Corea (Gadd...)

4) Looka-Py-Py by The Meters (Zigaboo...)

5) Ry Cooder by Ry Cooder (Richie Hayward)

6)...And Justice For All (can't deny my roots...)

This has always cracked me up......people who think Neil Peart is the greatest!!

Come on people.........he's a great drummer and was probably THE biggest key to Rush and their sound (aside from Geddy's voice) ....but one of the best drummers? I've always been a big fan.....but he's never on my 'greatest list'.......

as for album/s ...........way toooooo many to mention....too many categories, etc,etc.....

but.......I can't believe that Jeff Hamilton has not been mentioned!! Any jazzers out there ?!

Pick up "The Best Things Happen" by the Jeff Hamilton Trio .........azica records....you can find it in most record stores or on amazon..........I've seen him 2x and will see him a 3rd time in September.................absolutely A_M_A_Z_I_N_G !!!!!

I would have to agree with "Exit Stage Left" as being a top drumming album - awesome drumming and the sound is great.

Jeff Indyke who is one of the most prolific producers of drum materials is putting together instructional stuff for the "Best drumming albums" of all time. I know Cobham will be on there and also Miles Davis, Coltrane and Gabriel's albums.

Coolio, cool..........

For me, 'Hold Your Horse Is' by Hella. Maybe not the most accessible sound, but Zach Hill's drum performance has such unique talent it's staggering. His style and technique in complimenting the guitar part is almost supernatural. Untouchable stuff

I dunno, for me its gotta be Zeppelin, anything up to Physical Graffiti. Bonham totally introduced a whole new dynamic to rock drumming, and is one of my biggest influences to date.

And of course, YYZ is unparalleled.

Rush went to my school, by the way (junior high & highschool) I have a copy of Alex Lifeson's shop report card. He didnt do that well. Also, one of my good friends resides 3 houses down from Geddy Lee's old house. Sorry just felt the need to brag concidering this thread had so many rush references.

That's one of my favorite albums of all time, and it seems there are few people how know about it. Great stuff by the whole band.
