Back in University, they made the science students take two "Arts" credits.  One of mine was "History of Jazz".  Possibly the best class I ever took.   Loved it and this was part of the curriculum.  Loved the fact that in a song called "Sing, Sing, Sing" there was no singing.  But, I'm not sure that this is labelled correctly.  This is what I remember as Benny Goodman's version (with Gene Krupa on drums)

Blecchh...

I like your first word better.  Not sure it's in the dictionary but it was very descriptive.

Sorry . . BUT

Before Phil Collins went all sappy in the 90's he was one of the BEST drummers in the world.

Just one example of his work with Fusion Jazz Band Brand X from the late 70's . . . (it is necessary to listen to the whole thing to get a flavor of what the boy was cable of doing)

Sorry, but I think Collins should stick to doing Disney cartoons.

I'm a huge Rush fan, so most drummers don't impress me, but I'm surprised no one mentioned Bill Bruford from Yes, definitely one of the best out there and also a Hall of Fame member.

Well, that's a shame.  Neil Peart is good, but there are countless other amazing drummers out there as well.  If you think there's no one better than Neil, you are surely not looking very far for other great drummers.

This is one of Zakir Hussain's more unique tricks:

Listen as he alters the pitch of the bayan (bass drum) to mimic the melody lines of the flute.  It is absolutely sick that he can do that so well. 

And if you prefer tabla with a side of more Western fare:

Saw the trio above last spring, phenomenal stuff.

Absolutely!

This video is off the charts . . Carl starts his 5 minute + solo at 2:45 into the clip.

Incredible!  :)
