Joe Morello, really?

Oh yes! What he could do was scary.
Speed, technique, musicality - Joe had it all, plus he did some great work with odd-times, and making them sound musical (Take 5, Blue Ronda Alla Turk, Unsquare Dance etc).

The cool thing about Joe was that he wasn't a show-off, so no stick twirling, but he could play some stupidly amazing things, and look as relaxed as if he was reading the paper.

Unbelievable technique. Then again, he studied and worked hard at it.

Morello also wrote a couple of very challenging technical exercise books (Master Studies I and II), for those who might be interested.

Take Five is a classic, and I love a lot of Brubeck...but never really paid attention to the drumming as a standout feature of that band.

Morello can be so subtle, and everything sounds so effortless, it's easy to overlook him at times. Check out some of the live stuff (Carnegie Hall Concert for example), or just go to YouTube. Lotsa stuff on there!


Go to the 33:00 mark and let it play.  Morello pulls off a series of great fills.  As you say, effortless.

ha ha! Goose, you devil; the 33:00 mark is the end of the video and those fills are deadly, but silent.
Did you mean the 'trading fours' starting around 6:30? Tasty stuff!

:lol:  Yep, that was it!

Something from the Burning for Buddy sessions:



(The trading-fours start around 3:25.)

Not only is Joe Morello kicking ass on the drums, but the old blind bastard had to memorize the arrangement, and nailed it in one take (I figure this is the first take because he misses the crash on his right a couple of times and would've fixed it, or adapted, for a second try).
