TONY ZEE PERCUSSIONIST, AT COSDEL STUDIO

Tony Zee (image) on the drums during recordings at Cosdel, Singapore in the 60s.
Albert Louis explains that it is difficult to ascertain who is the best as the drummer must feel the music and would use different strokes when playing. For example in rock and jazz drumming, the person needs to understand and feel the rhythm. Technique is necessary but without that particular *groove (pop music with a good beat) all the strokes in the world would not help. According to Albert, drumming must be "in the blood."
*groovy = a word used in the 60s to mean exciting, modern, fashionable.
(Final extract from Albert's perspective about drumming.)
