Barry Altschul


Barry Altschul is a magnificent drummer who gained fame in the late 60's with pianist Paul Bley. He has beautiful traditional chops and when he recorded with Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton and Dave Holland during the circle era, Barry had a high-pitched Gretsch kit with add-on drums and percussion instruments, which he integrated seamlessly in a whirlwind of sound. No one sounded quite like him at the time, and his nuclear energy served him well when he teamed up with Sam Rivers and Anthony Braxton throughout the seventies. Barry also made a few excellent solo albums.
