Gotta love his drum sounds -- they're so in your face, yet manage to blend in perfectly.

I had to resurrect this thread from page four!! I noticed that Steely Dan is playing a brief US tour starting in June but I have not seen any indication regarding whether or not the usual Steely Dan suspects are playing with Don and Walt. Has anyone seen anything? Keith's website has not been updated for a while and there is no information indicating one way or the other whether or not he is touring with the Dan. Any information would be much appreciated.

It is a cliché in arts and performing to say that people just "have it"... but this is the thing, Keith just HAS IT... he's one of those guys like the excellent drummers mentioned that just brought a certain style, a sound, an aesthetic that was different... when people see him play, you just LISTEN and WATCH.

That's star quality.

His playing is phenomenal, his style original... and he is putting together an awesome resumé... his versatility and sound came seemingly all of a sudden to show everyone that intelligent, professional session drumming IS NOT DYING... is alive and well... he along many other guys are the PRESENT and the future of drumming.

....and his time.. its scary good. Its metronomic but with enough looseness to find the phatness of a groove and sit in it...like a pig in mud!

I saw Keith play with Steely Dan in Perth, Western Australia. It was their first gig on Oz soil. Man, the band is a class act and Keith really stood out and a musician of impeccable feel, technique and talent. Seeing him play was inspirational.

I'd love to see a concert with a rotating line-up of Dan drummers. Keltner, Gadd, Marotta, Chambers, Erskine, Purdie, Lawson, Carlock etc. How awesome would that be?

In answer to my own question above - and if anyone else is interested - while Keith's website and the Dan's website remains quiet on who will be playing with the Dan on its upcoming tour, the most recent Modern Drummer indicates that Keith will indeed be joining Don and Walt for the festivities.

If you have not seen the Dan play I strongly recommend going. It is the tightest musical perfomance you will ever see!

Ah...

He played Melbourne tonight with Wayne Krantz and Tal Wilkenfeld. Just a brief rundown on the gig...

It was ridiculous! I took some friends with me. None of us had ever heard any of these guys before, and we were all glued on Keith all night long. 30 seconds into the first song he was sweating up a storm, and he completely committed to everything he played.

He also played LOUD. It was at Bennetts Lane (medium to small sized Jazz venue) and they had the drums miced for some reason. I was 10 meters away and it felt like he had just walked off a stadium tour to play this show. It was crazy but powerful.

Tal (bassist, looks like she's 15) had sound problems the first half of the set, so it ended up being a duet between Wayne and Keith. They both rose to the occasion and destroyed it.

I managed to record some of the set, so I'll post it here, it's only audio but it's worth it. If this is against any rules, I'll take it down. I've got 4 clips, each about 8 minutes, I'll post more if anyone wants it.

Slight crackle in first 10 seconds, then it clears up I promise.

Also... Does anyone have any clue what snares Keith is using? I didn't get a close look, but his main was a metal piccolo type thing, maybe brass, his website says he uses a 3.5" by 14"?

He also had an auxiliary, wood hoops, fairly deep, maybe 6" or even deeper, in fact, most likely fairly deeper.

Just randomly, I searched google for pictures of Keith Carlock and came across this...

It appears his piccolo snare that I queried (in my previous post) is this one:

Yamaha SD 493 Brass Piccolo
(see link below)

And it looks like this:

I saw Keith play live not long ago and I was loving it. I was wondering what a good first CD would be to pick up with him on drums. Some people say his work with Oz Noy stands out really well. Is the live record the best? Or is there a studio record that I should get?

His work, so far has mostly been with Wayne Krantz, Oz Noy, Steely Dan and Sting. To really hear him open up & fly, I'd recommend his playing with Krantz.

Can anyone tell me with 100% certainty:

Does Keith Carlock actually record with his Oak kit, or does he revert to maple/birch in the studio?

I met him a couple of years ago in NYC, and he was taking about how good his smaller maple bass drum recorded ( he's got 2 maple bass drums.. at least ).

Which leads me to think he isn't recording with his his Oakies.. cant be 100% tho..


As an aside:- Here's how good the Dan backing section rocks even without the big boys.

This youtube clip is a NYC post-gig jam from this summer, at the Bitter End in the West Village.. how phatt can a phatt groove really be?...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lR7ru...eature=related

I was leaning that way in my beliefs. I don't know if oaks might be a pain to record because they are bright.

I don't fault him for that, oaks are a great "live" kit at least.

Default Keith Carlock- the next Steve Gadd

Steely Dan- Everything must Go, brilliant album full of solid grooves like Aja and the drum sound is much better than Two Against the Nature (Tin sounding!), the drummer is young Keith Carlock., sounds like Steve Gadd in a lot of ways.

Solid neat serious snare sound.

Wow!


That's what I just posted on another thread 'bout 15 minutes ago! Hee...hee...

I consider Keith Carlock as the "modern" Steve Gadd.

I love KC! So smooth. So refreshing. So stylish. And so unique in a lot of ways, too.

Yea, they both had ISOG. Some other drummers have it as well, but Steve & Keith's ISOG level is super high.

I see Keith is hitting the road again with James Taylor - check out the show if you can. I also just found this video of the opening tune that the band played on the 2006 SD tour prior to Donald and Walter taking the stage: Great stuff.

I picked up the Oz Noy Trio Live CD a week ago and was blown away by Keith's playing. This release gets my recommendation.

ISOG? Intense sense of groove? what does that mean?

Holy crap, YES! Kieth is a certified groove merchant! Unbelievably clean and tasty on the Steely Dan stuff. I saw him about two years ago in New York with Wayne Krantz, Tim Lefevre (LeFay?) on bass and Dave Binney on sax. Sick. Totally sick.

Lately I've been digging on this group that he plays in called Rudder. It's keyboardist Henry Hey's project. Haven't heard the new stuff with Krantz but now I'll probably have to.

For sure! Case in point: Try keeping the rhythm to "Godwhacker" (from Everything Must Go) for the duration of the song. It's not as easy as it initially sounds.

LeFebvre I believe. Wayne Krantz is a badd man. The song Sk8 by Rudder is pure gold.

Keith is a phenomenal groove player!! I got his new dvd - and as some mentioned in the thread, in a certain way he seems to do only 2 things in his playing, but it still rocks, and grooves, and blows you away. He does some Oz Noy, Rudder and Steely Dan stuff, answers questions from his small (!) master class audience, and probably some more, I have to watch it to the end yet.

The new record by Oz (Schizophrenic) is excellent too, by the way, highly recommended!! It also features Dave Weckl on a few pieces, and for the exception of one Dave surprised me with some really tasty and grooving drumming! (Which doesn't mean he hasn't taste and groove always, but I couldn't really imagine him fitting into Oz's music first...)

Thanks Bernhard! By the way, my description of the DVD was a little poor, I meant he actually plays to Oz Noy backing tracks as well as Rudder tracks, he "just" discusses and plays Steely Dan grooves without any music behind him, but it's worth it anyway. And he's joined by Wayne Krantz and Tim Lefebvre for some great jamming.
The DVD gives you great insight in Keiths mind, and in grooving in general. I find it totally inspiring, his awesome playing really gets you, and just listening to him almost makes you a better groove player :D.
