Actually now that I think, I did see a drummer that fits perfectly what I call "heavy drumming". It's Eric McPherson, who I saw last November drumming for Lucian Ban's Elevation Quartet. They play hard-bop or post-bop or something like that. Embarrassed

Here's a video from that concert. First you'll hear how powerful he is when supporting his colleagues, then he remains solo and starts by doing an amazing polyrhythm or whatever it's called, anyway something that I couldn't even tap my hands to, not to speak of drumming to that LOL, and then he goes to show how fast he can go on that rhythm. But his performance overall was exceptionally mindblowing.

Thats a great drummer for sure. Without the opening part of the tune it was hard to get a genre, but they were definitely moving to the "outside" sort of thing during the solos.
If you like this guy you might like Elvin Jones, especially some of his work with Coltrane 
One thing though, part of the reason the drums are so loud here is that whatever they are recording with is closer to the drums than the horns, but I bet he is pretty loud and intense either way.

They certainly are playing a very contemporary take of the genres they tackle.

It was a very small underground (literally) club so it evertything was just as loud regardless of where you stayed. I'm sure that this kind of small and very enclosed space intensifies the sound and the sonic experience.  But yeah, he blasts them.

I'll look up those albums, thanks!

Joe Morello.  He played with Dave Brubeck and his ease in taking on odd time signatures is amazing, especially since that was long before fusion.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord...

One reason of my infatuation with Mina Agossi (besides her singing and her gorgeous looks Embarrassed) is that she likes her jazz heavy on the drums/percussives:

You sir, are on it.

Weckl is also amazing, as well as David DiCenso. Check this:



He's a demon in fusion drumming, was the drummer on Hiromi's "Another Mind"

Long said it: a number of budding prog drummers of the 60's listened and even try to play along to Morello's recordings - Castillian Drums being a challenge on DBQ At Carnegie Hall - so I'll be happy to set the limit at 'one of the goodfathers of prog', especially when he only passed away in the last year.
 
I'm losing the thread's direction here, but have Alphonse Mouzon and Lenny White, in that school of heavier jazz rock rock drumming that Billy Cobham emplifies, been mentioned? Another powerhouse is Gary Husband - I've sat 6 feet away from his kit in a small audience, when he was playing with  Holdsworth - the deafening was worth it for the experience. And then Jon Hiseman (we have his biography reviewed elsewhere)??????????

Thanks Matt.  Just read his bio.  He does sound promising, but an overwhelming amount of albums.  I will have to see what I can find on YouTube, or maybe look for a compilation album to get a taste of what he has to offer.

OK.  Quick look at my iTunes collection I see I have a version of Moanin' as done by Brian Auger's Hammond Organ Big Band.  I'll have to check it out.  I do see it on You Tube too.

Actually you made me think of Sean Reinert, he is a very good jazz/rock drummer, although his style is also heavily influenced by death metal
