There is no best.
It's a matter of personal preference.

Whatever it may have been, I missed it because I went to take a leak.
The shorter, the better. Thats my take on drum solos.

I will more than a little surprised to get back to back shows with JaBuMaOt in Birmingham.

I'm not a big fan myself, but back to back nights was definately a bit much.

I never understood the drum solo feature in a show (ABB or otherwise). If the drummer(s) is good then it will be reflected in the songs. The ABB drum corp adds so much to the songs that a drum feature seems superfluous. It's like having Warren & Derek each play unaccompanied solos after 10 minutes of Elizabeth Reed. I like the occasional bass & drum jams though.

Ron Bushy's solo in In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is my favorite because it is "hummable" and is integrated into the overall feel of the song - it's like a tribal jam. I can't really call it a favorite though since I don't like that many anyway.

I have no favorite ABB drum corp feature.

I'm not a big fan of the Allmans' drum solos - at least not the epic ones that go past 8 minutes in the middle of a song that doesn't need one like "Liz Reed", "Black Hearted Woman", "High Falls" or "Leave My Blues At Home" - but I do love the drum solos in "Mountain Jam", especially Eat A Peach and Ludlow Garage. There is something very melodic and funky about them, especially the Ludlow Garage one, that is missing from the drums solos today.

I think Butch once said that if you dom't enjoy them then take a restroom break or something:

I typically take his advice.

The drum solos' on the LAFE I do enjoy however, they seem to be about the right lenght for my enjoyment.

That's what she said.

Drum solos = ugh. If I have to go to the bathroom, I go. If I don't have to go to the bathroom, I get something to drink. If I'm not thirsty....you get the idea. And it's not just the Allmans, it's every drum solo. If a drummer/drummers are good enough then they show it in the songs that are being played, you don't need a 15 minute portion of the show dedicated to it. Especially if 2 or 3 songs could be played in place of some of those lengthy drum solos.

yea, personally I think drum solos should be on the short side, maybe 16 - 32 bars (like most jazz drum solos).
I find most "long" drum solos a bit tedious. Matt Abst is an exeption, but his aren't as long as the Allmans or GD.

I should add, for perspective, that I'm a drummer.

I love all ABB drum solos, especially the long ones. They have a great rhythm section!!!

the rhythm section is great.
for my taste, I like them better when someone else is playing with them

On the off chance the band is looking at this and tallying results, I vote JaBuMaOt yes. It's like a brand new song at (almost) every show.
