Default Post the best open drum solos here

I’d like to listen to some musical, open drum solos. What I mean is where the drummer is the only one who plays and doesn’t have any reference to a melody that was just played earlier. Want to learn because I have a college audition and I am required to just play an improvised solo.

Not in the middle of a melody, but I'd probably start with some sort of phrase, sound or concept. It might be the first thing I play or something I start doing after making some noise in the beginning.

Here's a good one. :-)

My favorite drum solo of all time:

Best buzz roll I've ever heard.

I can never stop watching this after I start.

These old style solos are real cool, and definitely have a lot to offer for reference and inspiration. But in my experience a lot of the college jazz bands today lean more towards the drummers who play the newer "shed and chops" type solos. The old bop and big band solos are great stuff, but they are a little dated depending on what school you're going to

Guys like robert searight (unt)
matt garstka (berklee)
bryan carter (Juilliard)

I could be wrong and all schools are different, but ime you'll have a solo every single show and they usually like the newer quick chops style of drumming for the performances
