Default My fave fill right now (one for the groovey minimalists)

This one from JB's band at 2:39. It's Jabo on drums. Anyway, it's lovely in its minimalist groove-iness, with great snare sound and dynamics

Can hear Steve Jordan 'paying tribute' to this one. The groove that's happening right after the fill is what caught my attention.

And it's like one of the first things you learn. straight eighth notes. The dynamics make the fill though, the steady increase in dynamic. Very easy technically speaking.

I love how he tells us to "Get ready for it!" Those words are the best part of the fill.

What do you reckon - sounds like 3 rimshots in there to me on the 3+, 4, 4+

It's "Are you ready, Byrd?", said to Bobby Byrd, but yeah, I find listening to those late 60s/early 70s JB tracks are an education because of the amount of bandleading he does

Wow, that's cool I had no idea. The fact that he's singleing someone out before he does it makes it even better hahaha.

Nice one, Liebe. James Brown always had great musos.

My favourite minimalist fill is by Steve Gadd at 4:24 in this piece. If you blink you could miss it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_3YfRlM77s

Another great mini-fill, this time by Bill Bruford playing straight quarters at 2:17 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX8rOWMeiME
