I don't use a click when I know the drummer can play without one, when I feel the click will hinder the drummer or he simply plays better without one. Some drummers actually play better with a click, as they can put their emphasis on different parts of the beat and make room for their groove. Some drummers just stiffen up when they play with a click- this never sounds good.

One way to address this and still get a track recorded to a timing reference is to create a loop of something groove-oriented in the tempo of the song being recorded.
