Joe Morello

I really love this version of Take 5.  You can see how relaxed Joe Morello is, and how seemingly effortless and relaxed his playing is. Beautiful to watch!  

The drum solo starts around 1:45 - and it's downright amazing.  Check out his hi-hat control, and the way he uses his hands (without sticks), and how he hits the underside of his cymbal while playing his floor tom.  Inventive stuff here, and so tasty!  And that he does it with so much control and finesse is just (as I said before) downright amazing.  Wow.
