I just spent a few hours yesterday listening to percussion-oriented music at Duanegoosen's. I've been drumming for nearly thirty years, and if you want some excellent recommendations, I'd work your way through his posted list. Excellent stuff there.
And thank you, Duane. You've brought a whole new world of music into our house.
I second Trilok Gurtu, the album he made with Bobby Miles is terrific and one of the best recordings I have heard. Gurtu plays percussion and Miles plays keyboard. The music is a mix of alternative and world with an emphasis on percussion and synth.
The name of the CD is: Miles Gurtu.
Steve Tibbets - "Exploded View"
also register one more vote for Billy Cobham. "Spectrum" and "Crosswinds" are great even if you're not simply interested in percussion.
Not Jazz, but nice listening -
Stomu Yamashta, Michael Shrieve, Steve Winwood - "Go"
Michael Shrieve - "The Big Picture"
and, very different but big time percussion - "Blue Man Group"
