    i think so too. but they are so different as players, Rich is such a technical drummer. i tend to like Krupa's style.
    yeah krupa had more swing especially in that clip you can almost tap your fingers to his rhythms if you know them well enough......but rich isn't human and he could still play like that in his 60s

    B Rich was some kind of physiological freak of nature. He could play with more intensity for a longer amount of time than most humans, and he did it until he died. He had an incredible gift!

    I was relaying personal experience here.

    One of my friends (ESFJ) is a very technical musician whereas I have never had much formal training but we're equally as talented. I usually find P musicians more intense (can feel it in their music) but I might be biased.

    Violin.

    When I was in elementary, I played alto sax, but my mother pulled me out because she thought it was "too masculine" for me.

    I play viola fairly well and I also sing, but my guitar skills are total crap.
    Wanna learn cello and harp now. *shrug* We'll see.

    Never heard that one ... I also play alto sax, and the only sections that were truly 'male' were brass players.

    That said: :steam: @ human101. I was just about to start a similar thread

    Enough OT, here's the real deal.

    So just for starters, some of my favorite tunes (Title, Artist, Album):

    - Blue in Green (Miles Davis, Kind of Blue)
    - All Blues (ditto)
    - So What (ditto)
    - Visa Frn Utanmyra (Jan Johansson, Jazz p Svenska. It's a real gem, get it. Now!)
    - Hang Up Your Hang-Ups (Herbie Hancock, Man Child)
    - Stolen Moments (Oliver Nelson, The Blues and the Abstract Truth)
    - You don't Know What Love Is (Kenny Garrett, Standard Of Language)

    Sorry if I can't post links, youtube has become very restrictive so most videos don't show in Europe.
    IN SERIO FATVITAS.

    Some good old classics:

    Miles Davis, Kind of Blue
    John Coltrane: Giant Steps
    Bill Evans: California Here I Come
    Cannonball Adderley: Somethin' Else (with Miles Davis)
    Thelonious Monk: Monk's Dream
    Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um
    Herbie Hancock: Empyrean Isles

    For orchestral pieces, I always liked Ravel a lot, especially Pictures at an Exhibition, La Valse, the piano concerto, etc. Richard Strauss is great with Ein Heldenleben, Don Juan and others. Stravinsky with Rite of Spring, Firebird Suite, Patrouchka...

    Forgot to mention that my mom is pretty irrational and frequently lead by whim.

    We're thin on the classical side, so I'll mention Lang Lang and the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3.

    I like the way he plays the romantics in general. No schmaltz. Surprisingly refreshing and still very moving/engaging.
