Long considered the most musically interesting drum solo of all time by Louis Bellson and the Ellington orchestra, Skin Deep remains an awesome example of communication between the drummer and the rest of the band. It is not merely a person sitting at a drumset and playing as fast or as long as he possibly can, which unfortunately, most drum solos' are. Even near the end of the piece with other band members shouts egging him on (I doubt this was in the script but was purposely left in) adds to the piece.
Louis Bellson pioneered the double bass drum which is hardly used these days rather drummers today incorporate a "Double Bass Pedal".
