Nice, Alphonse Mouzon is one of my top fusion dudes (which is still jazz afaic). He gets swept aside for Cobham, but it ain't easy being a drummer when you're up against an octopus like him.

Amazing that Tommy Bolin was hand picked by Cobham for Spectrum and Mouzon for Mind Transplant. A white boy rocker from the midwest playing on two of the greatest black guy drummer fusion records of the 70s.

To be fair, fusion is the whitest subgenre of jazz that isn't smooth jazz.

Still, Bolin's resume is stellar.

Jame's Gang - Bang (when he replaced Joe Walsh) is a great early 70s rock record. A killer album cover to boot.

I saw him on the list and assumed it was aight because of it. That's smart listableness. Looking at it now it's whatever. Glad to see Rashied Ali on there but that's only because of Coltrane.

I think Roy Haynes is really underrated. His work on Now He Sings, Now He Sobs with Chick Corea is excellent.

Didn't read the whole thread here, but are there any love for Dannie Richmond? Longtime drummer for Charlie Mingus. Actually I don't have any other acquiantances with him apart from the Mingus times, but man I really loved his style! Acording to Mingus he was the only drummer good enough to play with him (complacency, yes?). Although I guess it's not only skills that is needed for playing with that angry man... But he sure could arrange his music and play that bass(!), I'd give him that.
