John Coltrane - a love supreme (Elvin Jones)
What single album had the most technically and musically excellent drumming that tied the music together while advancing style and still rocking your socks off?
I suggest Rush - Moving Pictures. Neil Peart took drumming to new heights with this album. If you can listen to "YYZ" without tapping your feet, beating your hands on your legs, and nodding your head, you have no pulse.
Bonus Trivia Question: Do you know what the significance of the letters "YYZ" is in reference to the song?
I have to agree here. I remember the first time I heard "Moving Pictures." I remember how floored I was at how dominant and prominant the drums were on this album. Just an amazing recording of the drums. And, I believe this was the beginning of my "air drumming" addiction.
I, personally, enjoy "Limelight" from Moving Pictures. I never get tired of listening to that song.
"momentum" bu Joshua redman. Don't know if it's the best given the amount of real jazz records out there, but it is quite a drumming album! heres two links to songs on that youtube.
