Jones did some crazy stuff with hi-hats and is a monstrous influence.

All great drummers, Papa Jo is one of the most influential drummers in jazz, as Soundgardener said. Technically, Buddy Rich is the best of the three, in my opinion. However, my favorite jazz drummer is Elvin Jones.

I'm a big fan of DeJohnette and Motian, too. I'm assuming Sanchez is a conga player, I know little to nil about latin music.

Louie Bellson should be on the list. Duke Ellington and Count Basie both called him the best drummer in the world.

Rich is an obvious choice for many. He had an amazing style, interesting personality, and the ability to improvise. The guy could keep a steady beat at age TWO for christ's sake! Then again, there are so many amazing jazz drummers from that 30s era, Krupa, Webb, Jones, not to mention early pioneers like Baby Dodds.
