Can everyone here agree Jimbo is the greatest of all time?
Damn! I've watched this many many times, and just…Damn.
The Japanese Drum Monster
I have been into Akira, for 15 yrs. And I always knew he was incredible. But I never got to see this video. OMG. I passed out. Thank you Akira for continuing to inspire me. Again,,,, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!.
That snare cuts like a sword.
Judging by image quality this must've been recorded in the mid 80s… still sounds amazing in 2016.
OH MY GOD !
Incredible composition, incredible playing !
Why does every comment about what Akira plays have to be qualified or supplemented with "of Japan"? Can't we just acknowledge him for what he is: one of the most talented drummers ever, and certainly better than Dave Weckl.
Damn this guy is so good
His drumming absolutely astounds me. His independence is awesome. Maybe one day i'll have just as much skill haha
the best of the best !!! excelente!! Mi inspiracion!!
I have been watching Jimbo for years. I am a Latin jazz drum teacher in Vegas and I
have learned so much from him. Thank you Akira Jimbo.
The textures he gets out of the hihat are amazing…wonderful touch!
He is using Advanced Polyrhythmics, very skilled drummer.
One of the greatest drummers alive.
Oh, and for those that insist on comparisons ("portney is way better", etc.). A measure of the skills and talent of drummer you want to compare to another drummer is to ask: can another drummer replicate what this one is doing, and vice versa. Mr. Jimbo can play almost anything anyone else can play, but it would very rare for the opposite. What you watching in this video is amazing.
He has incredible indepence and the ability to launch into intricate Afro/Cuban polyrhythms at will. I'd say he's one of my favorite drummers to listen to…it's always educational!
What time signatures are in this song ?
I agree. 1st rate musician/drummer.
some next-level shit right here..
I have read in many videos over youtube where Akira is performing as the class act he is, nasty comments about his style or skills… of course those are people who feel an immense envy and hate for this magnificent drummer… He is flawles every note he plays, just perfect!!! I am sure you're not a shitty drummer, everyone has unique qualities and it's just about how we explode them into the best level that matches for us… if you love music and practice you can't be that bad!! Cheers!!…
If this is bad, then there isn't an adjective in the english language to adequately describe how shitty of a drummer I am.
Please, someone open his head and see what have inside. I swear, he does not have just one Brain. Maybe a brain and a drumm kit, but, not just a brain.
Ridiculous talent. He's on a level to himself.
This crazy (Y)
