When it comes to technique, speed, power, and the ability to put together incredible drum solos, Buddy Rich lived up to the billing of “the world’s greatest drummer.” His was a career that spanned seven decades, beginning when Rich was 18 months old and continuing until his death in 1987. Immensely gifted, Rich could play with remarkable speed and dexterity despite the fact that he never received a formal lesson and refused to practice outside of his performances.

This album is a collection of the very best live solos Buddy performed on the road in the mid to late 70s, recorded with Rich’s permission by Buddy Rich Band alumnus Alan Gauvin. With over 70 minutes of pure energy captured at the prime of Buddy’s career, this rare, exclusive, and all original collection is a windfall for avid Buddy Rich fans and drummers alike.
