Best Jazz Drummersahmedaser A list about the best drummers in the most underrated genre ever! "Jazz era".
The Top Ten
There is not enough words to express the greatness and superior drumming of buddy rich. Whether he was playing a small venue night club or huge arena or jazz festival he gave you more than a hundred percent. Many drummers claim to play like buddy rich. But there was only one buddy rich. Like Gene Krupa said many many times buddy rich is the greatest drummer to draw breath. That statement by gene Krupa still holds true today
BUDDY RICH played inn a concert in my home town in the early 80s, LoL my former band director/drum section leader actually was in stage & did a battle against the king of jazz drumming...& he lost... lol it was awesome...
Maybe it's a matter of big band versus small group. True, he totally kicks ass in the big band. Ditto for Krupa. But all in all, I'd rather listen to Max, Art, Elvin, Tony, Jack, Roy and many others. - JimmyL
Best drummer ever no one can play like Buddy.V 1 Comment
Most creative drummer ever. Syncopated snare work was extremely unique.
Max Roach must have been good if he was able to play from 1944 to 2002
Incredible power plus outstanding tecnique!
Nobody's better. Except maybe Max Roach.
