Billy Cobham is the man you're looking for!!! He's the most incredible drummer I've ever heard. He plays with a stupendously large kit & he makes every symbol sing with total ease.
I wish I could post some video's up, but I'm having problems with my YouTube connections for some weird reason, but the video I'd post up would be Freddie Hubbard's "Straight Life" album, or maybe Thelonius Monk's "Underground" album, or even something from Oscar Peterson, "Sandy's Blues" or his version of "Summertime". Wild man, just totally wild. I've listened to all these today
