I don't think that's Charlie playing with the Rockabilly/swing group in the video, but I can't say for sure.

Tiki Fullwood, Tyrone Lampkin and Jerome Brailey during the 70's years of the P-Funk enterprise.

Jerome,

That's Jimmy and the Mustangs.
The song they're playing is featured on an album that lists Charlie Quintana as the group's drummer.
I was wondering if that was Charlie seen in the video, since that band went through a few a drummers during its time.

Dig all of those folks. Honestly, I don't even know who plays on any given track. I've listened to plenty of Parliament and (especially) Funkadelic and I love that stuff... the rhythms are of course a big part of it and so the drumming is key... always groovy.

Two come to mind. One is Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken.

While he might not be so obscure, another favorite of mine is JP Gaster.

I like JP's drumming with the more obscure groups called King Hobo and The Bakerton Group.

Here is a Clutch promo photo of JP with a nice Slingerland kit:

Wow, Dennis Diken.
I had that album, in '86.
I used to listen to it constantly and learned just about all of the songs off it.
I'll have to revisit that one.
Thanks for the reminder.

Donald Bailey. Jazz drummer from the 60's and onward for Jimmy Smith, Hampton Hawes, and countless others. He was a huge influence on much more famous drummers such as Jack Dejohnette. Donald was playing his ass off till just recently when his mind started faltering due to various complications relating to old age. One of my big influences as well. I miss seeing him play.

J.P. is a stud-great drummer, and I love his sound. And I agree on the Bakertons. Got my blues-ish band playing a few of their tunes. Good stuff.
