Okay, Weckl is a f.cking monster. That first clip of him was just devastating. That is probably the most flawlessly smooth playing I've ever heard from anyone.
Gadd, on the other hand, isn't quite as ridiculously skilled, but he has so much feel. Yes the grooving is phenomenal too, but honestly I think Weckl's grooves were just as good, judging from these clips anyway.
Anyway, this was all great shit! Definitely gonna be checking out more from all of these guys, especially Weckl.
As I said Colaiuta and Weckl are in a league of their own, the next is Gadd and Cobham, many say Weckl is the most flawless player there ever was and will be, that may be true but my drum teachers complaint is he's far to predicatable
On the other hand Gadd is known as the best groover because groove is all about feel and I know very few drummers with as much feel as Gadd
some more Weckl, found this through your other link, this is kinda sick too, love the cowbell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUzyxqOA ... re=related
