I thought he had a solid relaxed feel on that buddy stuff. Nice!
Not much for stage presence or presentation. Some guys are more interesting to watch than others.

Doesn't look the most passionate and with certain things I agree. To my taste I can say that about several of the greats, though. It's both about musical and personal style.

I like Benny best when he does his own thing.

He's good, though. Maybe sometimes makes things look too easy.

I love Benny, saw him play last month and he was very funny and relaxed, as well as very creative and skillful as a player.

I wish, wish, wish he'd do more as part of a major artist's project though, rather than just music through his own lens. I know he hasn't JUST done his own thing but an association with a major act, seeing how he intepreted their music, would be so good. Gadd has Simon & Farfunkel, Weckl has Chick Corea, Erskine has Weather Report, Omar has Madonna, Vinnie has Sting, Herbie etc etc etc - all those guys from the previous generation have had their playing and legacy partly defined by looking outwards and making something really cool in a more mainstream arena, as well as doing the more muso stuff so well.

Anyway I feel like Greb is truly something fresh in a world where it's sooo hard to genuinely move the game on.

As much as I love him (I've been a fan since I saw him live in 2002, when he was still Benjamin Greb) there's no comparison to Gadd, Vinnie or Weckl.
They each have distinctly unique personalities on the drumset and for that, they've been celebrated around the world for the last 4-5 decades.

I didn´t want to be a buzzkiller, but Greb does not belong to that list... Not in a million years.
