Bridging the gap between rhythm and melody
Here is another example of a master drummer clearly bridging the gap between rhythm and melody.  It is fascinating to hear how clearly Ralph's voice comes through on both the trumpet (!) and the drums.  For more examples of drummers bridging this gap click here or here.

Thanks to the people on the great forum at Drummerworld for the recommendation, and the new website Jazzheaven for all the wonderful educational videos!  Also check out Cruise Ship Drummer for an interview with Ralph that adds some nice depth.
