    Should a drum solo "fit" the rest of the piece?

    In the piece linked below the drumming sounds acceptable to me as accompaniment but the solo towards the end (around 2.30) doesn't strike me as relevant to the rest Same sort of thing on other tracks of the CD. (I do like the singer tho', Jean Lamb, not heard of her before)

    Cheers MIKE.

    The short drum solo certainly does not fit the style of the rest of that track. Maybe that is the drummer's interpretation of the other notes being played by the other instruments; I love dixieland stuff, btw.
