Default Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

I turned the radio on to the jazz station the other night. I heard this nice, tasteful solo; perfectly executed, beautifully groovin' and utterly virtuous. No crazy chops, no wild rolls or fills.

I was certain it was Buddy due to the drum sound, but I'd never heard this solo before. Sure enough, the band kicked in and it became obvious.

I've been listening to this guy since I was tiny and he still never ceases to amaze me.
