Default Re: Buddy Rich - Away We Go, Drum Solo.

I dont know how much sense this will make to everyone but Ill try to explain what I hear in Buddy's playing.....take a horizontal line and think of the melodies and harmonies on the positive (above) and negative (below) the line throughout the line. All the while Buddy is playing over, under on that line without stopping....his flow was so different than drummers in his era. It was like he was playing melodies, harmonies and rthymns all at one time.
