Look at all those stick twirls and fancy licks and moving around. Man, I try to stay as still as possible at my core.

I fast forwarded to his solo and thought that the sonic artifact doing a constant and regular stream of du du du du du was the drummer doing some crazy bass drum control ostinato! LOL

Ray Baduc is an extremely important piece in the history of drumming

check him out here playing on the bass strings

Ray could swing his ass off

but as far as showmen.....this is the king

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrKShqNkcnI

also if you can find some footage of Sonny Greer .....he was the king stick twirler ....but not a whole lot of footage of him exists

do you not know who Ray Baduc is J?

his work with the Original Memphis Five, Tommy Dorsey , Jimmy Dorsey , and later with Bob Crosby had him setting trends in jazz drumming in the 20's 30's and 40's

he is a hero to many of the jazz players to come after him
