How many drummers can boast of receiving an accolade from Buddy? And knowing Buddy, he wasn't just "being nice to the girl."

A duet of This Masquerade with the immortal Ella Fitzgerald. I would KILL to have this in its entirety...
Can you imagine how Karen Felt when Buddy said that. Knowing how condescending Buddy could be with people. I would have been nervous and shaking when I met him! If he said that to me I probably would have thought that I was on candid camera! Or just simply passed out!
I kind of like old drums:)
