This is music.

I love how he hits the instruments, he is not a basher at all, and what a sound !!!

Seriously, if there is a drummer that embodies the best the words finesse and taste, it 's Manu !

Please, I want more of this !

Vive la France !

Manus' solo here is quite brilliant. I've seen him many times in the past and have read alot of peoples' reactions to his playing and I don't remember ever seeing anything written about his bass drum work. He's got fabulous bass foot technique. Am I the only one who notices this? His all-around style is beautiful and passionant as he just flows right through the songs and solos. But I'm really impressed with his bass foot. Thanks for a great video, guys! Play on!

Manu Katche is a great drummer , and a great musician , he got every thing in his playing , i don't feel there is some thing missing in his playing , he is just a great musician \ drummer and i love his playing , maybe in some concerts that i saw him he was kind'a " dead " but it's very hard to take over Vinnie's place....

Couldn't agree more in regard to what Manu brings to Gabriel's musical table. I think Manu's drumming voice, however, is not as clear in the work that he did with Sting. The playing is as great as you would expect from anyone occupying the Sting throne but his playing always sounded a little more generic than on other work. I especially love his playing on "Somewhere Down the Crazy River" by Robbie Robertson (mentioned above) and on the studio version of Tears for Fears' "Bad Man's Song" featuring the great Oletta Adams (also astutely mentioned above).

I think he is one of the more unique players in a professional world dominated by great drummers but who tend to sound very similar to one another.

Paul,

I am going to have to disagree with on the Sting records; specifically " The Lazarus Heart" and "Rock Steady" off of Nothing Like the Sun. To me these somngs changed my playing and I stumbled onto Manu by accident. I also read somewhere that Neil's favorite players at the time were Manu Katche` and Phil Gould. Since I was into Neil, I started checking these two guys out and never looked back!

I suggest that everyboby listen to "The book of my life" from the Sting's album "Sacred Love". The playing of Mr Katché is just mind-blowing and full of life and breath.

For me Manu Katche is a living legend. He can play all kinds of styles very well. You see him with Sting and then with Jan Garbarek. He is simply amazing. Did you see the video on this site where he is playing with Jan Garbarek. Its a really good solo.

So i traveled to Paris 3 days ago to see the great Goove Master Manu Katché, took photos and even filmed a little with my pocket camera...The show was just amazing, the acoustic in the theater great. They actually did not amplify the drums, so it was great listening to Manu 'acousticaly'

Well, how about this: If he really was playing like a music store drummer, how exactly do you think he made it onto one stage with Sting or PG?? Are you saying that these two guys are so untalented and unaware of what their Drummer is doing that they just didnīt realize that the guy couldnīt play??

Hmmmm... I guess that you must be such a great musician that you never listen to such untalented people like Sting or PG because their music isnīt rather special, is it?

Next time you post don`t forget that you are posting something on the most famous drumming board on the Net. Some of the guys that we are talking about here actually do read this and answer to some posts. If I was Manu and had to read your stupid statement, Iīd be really annyoed by the fact that some punk who doesnīt know anything about me posts such bs. Well - as far as I know Manu, he probably wouldn`t care a bit.
Yeah...I think I'll add that to my top five dumbest too. Come on man....Listen!

Default Manu Katche

Hi - I did a search for Manu Katche on this forum but found only 2 short posts. I have been extremely impressed with what I consider his unique, musical playing style and love what he did with Peter Gabriel. To me something very magical. Wondered if there are are drummers out there that know more about Manu who could add their thoughts? Cheers.

For those who may not be familiar with him - a look at his musical drumming style. His playing fits the song like a glove...

I LOVE Manu's playing very much. The guy is so musical, so subtle and so killin all the time. Folks treat yourself - go listen to Sting's "Lazarus Heart" - the playing on that tune is so tasteful and grooving/swinging like mad. When I heard that I was blown away man - I mean the stuff he plays to propel that tune and compliment everything else happening is just pure drumming genius.

His solo album on ECM is really great as well - check it out.

Cheers,
Byrne

As far as I recall it, that was exactly the song I transcribed in parts. But I'm not sure... shame on me :(

Have you brought Manu's most recent album 'Playground'? Its an excellent example of his subtle and tasteful playing. I got tickets to see him at Marciac jazz festival but unfortunately there was a storm on the night of the concert. I was crushed!

If you want a real treat, find Manu Dibango's Wakafrica. Mr. Katche is an absolute groovemaster on that album. The album is on my continuous rotation list. I never tire of listening to Manu's drumming.

check out Joe Satriani's self-titled "black" album if you're intrigued by Manu. Way out player, even in a jazz-rock context.

His playing really knocked me out on the Peter Gabrial disc "So" back in '86. Very cool and smooth. When I saw him live a few years later, I was suprised how hard he rocked as well.

It's so cool to hear a drummer playing "pop" music yet having such an identifiable sound.

Yeah, Manu's work with both Peter Gabriel and Sting knocked me out Perfectly played for the song in every case and the dude grooves like crazy, too. I love his playing. Hey, man, if you've got 'Home at Last' by Steely Dan, I would almost kill for a copy!! Thanks in advance as you'll save me a ton of time!!

You beat me to it. Satch's self-titled album is , IMO, his best, and I am a huge Satriani fan. I believe it is the best because (a) he sticks to the basics, rather than shred with multiple pedals and effects, and (b) Manu Katche's drumming is flat FILTHY!

The drums MAKE the album great!

I saw him with Gabriel a few times. Great player.

He sort of dropped out of sight, at least here in the US. Haven't heard much about him in a while.

Hi all,first excuse me for my poor english. I'm one of those drums sound fan who don't much care who's sitting behind drums. Important to me is the sound that the drummer produce and if it hits me or not. Anyway i must admit that the autor of the text about Manu was completely rigth about Manu ability to say his name through an instrument such as drums. It's truly difficult but Manu can do it. Here's the story. Since i'm from Croatia i listened some good stuff from local musician named Gibonni, about the same time i was much into Police and some old songs like Roxane and Message in the bottle, as allways listening those incredible drum parts of Copelands .. art.. (no name for it..) At one point i somehow start thinking that the Gibonni's drummer must be influenced by Copeland because it had something Copeland's. After looking into it i realize that Gibonni's drummer is Manu. Thats the first time i've heard of him. And later i found that Manu really played with Sting... Later i was into some Tracy Chapman old classics, realy enjoying it.. and for the first time i've heard the song Dreaming on a world (from Matters of the hart), and it sounded incredible... The drum part is so incredible.. so simple, minimalistic.. but so powefull, unpredictable and yet soft and gentle as summer wind. I've been listening the song for about year now .. allmost every day. And gues who's the drummer. Great Manu.!! So it is the true. Manu can say his name through drums.. While listening Manu's parts, you can feel positive energy, great sence of rythm, beats that come in the right place at a right time .. all at once. Truly something beautifull. If you like his work, pleas take time to listen Tracy Chapman - Dreaming on a world (studio version). And the more times you hear it - the more it will ask you to listen it again. I'm not joking..
