First to mind, Abbey Road. Ringo's drumming really went off the charts on this one.
Well this thread started in 2005, and has been re-visited periodicaly as more extraordinary drummers are shining on a specific album or because (that' my case) a newbie went down the archives to look for interesting reading.
I've read loads of posts, and there's definitely some masterpiece within this thread )
So here's my current best drumming album of all time:
Hiromi Trio Project album "Voice", Hiromi Uehara: Piano, Anthony Jackson: Bass, Simon Phillips: Drums.
Incredible music, Hiromi's jazzy material is utterly musical, modern, innovative and beautiful and the skills, feels and musicality of these three wonderful musicians are from another world such is the interaction and complicity between them throughout each and every songs in this album.
For me, it is by far my favourite recording of my long time "spiritual" drumming mentor, Simon Phillips. )
Moving Pictures was the first album that popped into my mind as well.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?
Hey man, be obtuse as you want to be. It is a free world on here. You have helped me learn that. Thanks man. Hope you are going to have a great Christmas.I just look at things in a different way to most other people. I do enjoy being deliberately obtuse sometimes too, though!
