Buddy Rich The Final Recording


In 1966, Buddy Rich finally managed to put together his own successful big band, which under different guises became his main group for the next 20 odd years. These outfits - which featured young, unknown players - performed largely at colleges and universities and won over a new generation of jazz listeners. Rich introduced rock and pop arrangements into the band’s repertoire, demonstrating his ability to adapt to his audience’s changing tastes.

Rich had a fiery temper, which he freely acknowledged, having once said to jazz journalist Whitney Balliett: “I have the worst temper in the world. When I lose it, oh baby.” Known as well for his caustic humour and engaging personality, Rich was a frequent guest on The Steve Allen Show and Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show, as well as other television variety shows.

Today, Buddy Rich is remembered as one of history’s greatest musicians, and was, according to jazz legend Gene Krupa, “The greatest drummer ever to have drawn a breath.”
