I was doing this "rhythmdeaf" ear test yesterday. http://jakemandell.com/rhythmdeaf/ And I thought I would only do a couple... But I found myself really liking some of the patterns and ended up with a pretty good score.

However after that I want to find more music with similarly dense rhythmic patterns. It's really fun to listen to even if these examples were probably no great representation of them(the sound quality is about the same as when somebody is beating on an 808 next door...).

If anyone has some tips on music with a lot of rhythmic density, please give me some suggestions!

The ones I can think of from the top of my head is
Virgil Donati



Michel Camilo maybe?


Techdiff


Maybe Brecker Brothers


But there must be so much more and better.

Heh. That's pretty fun. Although I wouldn't call it rhythmically dense, I'd say that DT is most often extremely rhythmically dilute. They almost always play in unison rather than layer different rhythms.

Thanks for the suggestion though


Awesome! That's exactly what I'm talking about! Great suggestions klasaine!

Cool topic! And some great suggestions. Loving that Skunk Funk. I thought I would add another Zappa tune that is one of my favorites.
Maybe not the best example but I think it has it's moments.

Really enjoying this Start at around 10 minutes.


It's only 4/4 but the layers become more and more rhythmically complex so it turns into a super-groove after some time.

Okay this is... it...

I really like those last two you posted Vergiazghra! Innovative and unexpected.

Here's a few more.
Weather Report in the 70s was pretty dense rhythmically but also with a lot of pure improvisation ...




Cobham/Duke (John Scofield on guitar) ...




King Crimson. How the hell do they sing over this live!? ...



Dig Fripp's insane solo at 2:07 ...



Holdsworth/Bruford ...
