Also I can highly recommend Dutch performers Benjamin Herman, Michiel Borstlap, Eric Vloeimans and Jasper Blom.

Just google any of the names and start listening
Well..if the OP doesn't check out some of the Dutch artists, I probably will! Since I know you're also a drummer..can you recommend any drummer specific artists? (non-American ones that is. I might know already know 'em or at least have heard of them, but I'm always open for newer stuff!)

Well, of course El Negro is originally Cuban and Antonio Sanchez Mexican. As it comes to Dutch drummers listen to John Engels, Lucas van Merwijk, Han Bennink or Martijn Vink to name a few. Not sure if it's easy to find any of their music.

John Engels made a great record "Brilliant!" with a band called the Diamond Five ages ago. It was reissued a few years ago and it swings from start til end.

Another drummer that comes to mind is Manu Katche

I have to think a bit harder for other drummers. Will let you know.

Cool..I have heard of some of those folks/have albums by them (El Negro, Katche, and I'm pretty sure I have some Bennink as well)..but I'll check out the other ones too! (Especially if you can come up with some other ones...)
Thanks!
