I can't believe no-one has mentioned John Bonham+John Paul Jones? They were so tight they had to disband when JB died!

I sure wish we had a tight rhythm section. Our bass player hasn't been to the last 3 practises. Thinking maybe it's time to give her the sack...

Semi-serious. Moon and Entwistle would be my choice as greatest rhythm section ever so on that end I was serious.

Of course, I wasn't serious when I said to close the thread. Everyone has opinions and there are some other great rhythm sections of exceptional merit.

I am pretty biased when it comes to the Who. I have tried to find a bass player better than John Entwistle from his era, and none exist. Keith Moon I love because of his charisma behind the drums. He brought us drummers from behind the scenes.

Keith Moon and John Entwistle are legends, pioneers, great, awesome and I miss em both.

Agreed, the stuff between Chambers and Grainger on those DCI tapes are untouchable.

I think Tony Williams/Herbie Hancock are a heavenly team, they way the lock in together. Of course he's not a bass player, but Tony and Herbie's interaction hit me harder than Tony and Ron's interaction, if you know what I mean.

Not quite for me. Herbie was the next piece added to the musical puzzle from the "root" that gave it propulsion to move forward which was first established between Ron and Tony which was based on heavy listening, complete trust and elements of chance and surprise between bass player and drummer. Ron was the anchor and Tony was the shaper and Herbie tied it all together completing the picture.

I have to say that the combo Ron Carter and Tony Williams worked incredibly well. It`s so much fun listening to them.

Another great sounding duo is Francois Moutin with Louis Moutin:

And finally I should probably mention Ari Hoenig with Matt Penman. Really stunning musicians who seem to know what the other thinks.

Second that. Found this clip of Bruford - Levin showing how great they are.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMPQkIaQEgI

It does however bring up a few questions:

1. Why does Bruford get up out of the seat and spin around every few minutes without hitting anything? Did Levin make him change his mind at the last second?

2. Where does Levin get those tiny drumsticks he tapes to his fingers?

3. Does Bruford own the record for most Simmons pads ever used at one time? Did he own stock in the company? ( I say yes.)

May be old fashioned, but for me Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen are just undeniable.

Of today, has anyone else heard Jack Mouse (drums) and Bob Bowman together? I have "Standard Procedure," and they really turned me on on that album.
