Chris Cutler might be my favourite drummer, but he is no jazz drummer. But on the other hand Henry Cow's first album was at least partially JazzRock, so naming him is somewhat justified.

Joey Baron is also wonderful, although he does a lot of rock and other stuff as well.
Here's a solo performance:



I also really like Chris Corsano. Incredibly talented guy.

Paul Lovens and Joey Baron are among my favourites. I'd only heard some of Corsano's stuff before, but it turns out he's on a lot of great records I already like too. Have you heard Sunny Murray? My favourite drummer who's worked with Cecil. He also did a lot of stuff with Ayler and basically invented the blast beat.

That was a great performance. Thanks for that.

Jon Wikan.
Works quite a bit with Geoffrey Keezer (brilliant pianist).
Saw them in a local jazz club a couple of years ago.
Really carries the music without taking it over.
Spoke to him in between sets, a really great guy.

I wonder if anyone here has seen the movie Whiplash. It's about a kid in NYC striving to be one of the greats in jazz drumming.

Jones is definitely incredible, but if I had to choose a favourite from that scene, it would be Rashied Ali.

Someone mentioned Mouse on the Keys earlier. Toe is another such band that comes to mind, though in this case it's a pretty thin stretch to call it jazz strictly speaking.

For example:

When it comes to fusion Furio Chirico from "Arti & Mestieri" is one of my favourites.

Shadow Wilson on Monk & Coltrane at Carnegie Hall, particularly for his cymbal work on Epistrophy

Are you sure that's because of Ali or could it be because Trane laid down his most avant garde stuff with Ali?
