What do you play along to?

Would love to know what particular recordings drummers get inspired to improvise to when you're alone with your drum set. What gets you excited?

Rite of Spring and other classical stuff. Every now and them some jazz tunes to challenge myself (I’m essentially a rock drummer so jazz is a bit outside my comfort zone). Otherwise I don’t do much of playing along to music and never have actually. On the other hand, when I was younger I studied songs intensely and wrote the drum charts to learn them.

“The Art of Conversation” by Kenny Barron and Dave Holland is great to record yourself to, since it’s only piano and bass and, obviously, those two really swing.

I bought it yesterday on itunes and played along to the first three songs today. I really like it - thanks again for the recommendation!
