Post Ginger Baker Documentary
I know there are some serious music fans on this board and I know there some Ginger Baker fans here, too. If you are one of those persons then you owe it to yourself to watch the documentary titled "Beware of Mr Baker.:" It is simply outstanding in most every way as it reveals the genius and insanity of drumming legend, Ginger Baker. Take a look at the clip and see what I am talking about.

Awesome. I have always been a huge fan. I have mentioned on some other thread about a CD my wife had when we got together in 2006. It was called "Coward of the County" (No, not THAT one) by Ginger Baker and the Denver Jazz Quintet with special guest James Carter.

To say I was blown away would be an understatement. It is one of the greatest jazz recordings I have ever heard, and I say that as the proud owner of 150 John Coltrane albums and much more.

And how are you going to top "Toad," "Traintime," "NSU," "Spoonful" and all of the other Cream masterpieces?

Thanks for the trailer!

I'd put him up against any drummer in the drumming and crazy categories. 8-)

I'm slightly partial to Buddy Rich in both categories, but it makes for a great discussion!

[finally up to the assault on Ft. Sumter!]

I know this is a to each his own discussion, but my favorite drummer that i've ever seen is Carter Beauford, from Dave Matthews Band. I know i'm a little partial but what that guy does amazes me. However, I doubt that both Carter and Neal would not say that Ginger was a heavy influence on them and their playing styles.

At some point, it comes down to personal preference. There are many outstanding drummers -- on the scene now and in the past. Here are a few other favorites of mine, and I'm sure I'll think of more the moment I hit SUBMIT:

Matt F'n Abs
Jeff Sipe Todd Nance
Billy Cobham
Alphonse Mouzon
Anthony Cole

Elvin Jones (never saw him)

Who can deny JOHN BONHAM, whose influences were Gene Krupa & Buddy Rich, as an outstanding drummer?

It's a righteous and long list, for certain.
