Default Classic Jazz drum solo song

Hey guys,

I was listening on Spotify to one of my jazz playlists, and I stumbled across this awesome Jazz song that is basically a drum solo, like what Moby Dick is to rock. The song Iím talking about is Cozy Coleís track ďTopsy part IIĒ. Iím really impressed how it just grooves along, and isnít a mass output of random notes as fast as possible. And, the drum sound is awesome! That snare and those toms are that classic 50ís mono drum sound.

If you like that, punch in "Sandy Nelson"....

A little later (60s) but a similar vibe...

Thanks, Mongrel! I googled his stuff and really like it, very similar to the Cozy Cole stuff but with surf rock instead of Jazz.

Good stuff here. Goes to show you don't need a thousand notes in a measure to be a good solo.

Sounds musical, groovy and just feels right. Same for Sandy Nelson.

I get the feeling that "impressive" is now the major criteria for drum solos.

Ever tried dancing to a Terry Bozzio solo ? I'd look like a disarticulated version of the Robax mascot on crystal meth.

I myself prefer the former.
