indeed. i would add (guitarist) Freddie Stone to the Family Stone listing. his part is far more important to "Thank You" than Graham's.As with so many "Top-xx" lists, these results are as narrow as they are subjective.
Where are the Swampers? Stax session guys? Wrecking Crew? Paul & Ringo?
And since when is the rhythm section just bass & drums? Oh yeah, for the purposes of that list, that's all it is.
But, discussion and debate is a large part of what makes a forum tick. If anything, the list serves to bring up all of the great "rhythm sections" that aren't on the list.
i wish i knew more about prog and jazz. oh, sure, i can dig it...but i'm not versed. i thank you for the knowledge you drop.Some fantastic rhythm sections there.
Bill Bruford has been involved in some fine rhythm sections:
First with Chris Squire in Yes.
Then with John Wetton in King Crimson in the 70s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMYCQa5keaI
Then with Tony Levin and Bill Bruford in the 80s King Crimson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLQhLcKyGs8
I had one of theseHow about Boss' Dr. Rhythm Section. That's in my top ten.
You know Henri, I have Hiromi's trio album featuring Simon & Anthony. I've beaten it to death, & there's still a ton of sections in there where I haven't got a clue what Anthony's playing. He's an "undercurrent" of a bass player. There's a vibe going on that defies individual note identification. He's special alright, & works so superbly with Simon.Anthony Jackson & Simon Phillips http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERrURj2MlxA&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLFB1203922248B203
Yep. I love lists. They remind me of great music I've not heard for a while. A fair few already listed. The playlist in my head can only hold so much.If anything, the list serves to bring up all of the great "rhythm sections" that aren't on the list.
