Default Killer Rhythm Sections

Who would you nominate for the Rhythm Hall of Fame?

A few of my favorites that jump quickly to mind are:

Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker
Keith Moon & John Entwistle
John McVie & Mick Fleetwood
Chris Layton & Tommy Shannon

Who are your favorites?

Doc

Anyone one of the many combinations of bassists and drummers that have played with Ahmad Jamal.

Whoever is not soloing at any given time in the DGQ

And I'll second the Ron carter and Tony williams, and
Dave Holland (or Gary Peacock) and Jack Dejohnette combos.

No..............Steve Chopper:-)

In the studio world, the rhythm section extends to everyone except the leads. So Booker T. qualifies as well as Steve.

Duane Allman was a member of the Muscles Shoals rhythm section for a year.

Hey Bob,
I agree.......... and they were greater than the sum of their parts without a doubt, and in general, groove and rhythm were always held in higher regard than soloing.

I used to play with a pretty good rhythm section in a band called Topper. The bassist was Doug Stegmeyer and the drummer was Liberty DeVitto. We backed up a guy named Russ Javors.

We all eventually recorded and toured with Billy Joel, but some of their best stuff is on reel to reel tapes in my basement......It broke my heart when Doug took his own life back in '95.

Pat has been touring with Antonio Sanchez and Christian McBride as a trio for the last few months. This is a side project from the regular PMG stuff which Steve is of course the bass player for.

Any major Big Bands from Woody Herman to Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman had 'Killer' rhythm sections.
All great bands from Rock to Jazz had 'Killer' rhythms.
Personally, I always liked Chick Corea's and Tito Puente's bands.
Don Ross, all by himself.
