Buddy Rich – The Lost Tapes
Buddy Rich: The Lost Tapes is an historic preservation and restoration project. The producers recovered the masters from a ﬁre in 1990 and went about restoring the original surround sound track of the last concert Buddy Rich recorded before he passed away in 1987. This release follows the Emmy Award winning Channel One Suite and both concerts were recorded on the same night.
Arguably the greatest jazz drummer of all time, Rich’s career spanned seven decades. He played with such greats as Tommy Dorsey, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Ventura, Louis Armstrong and Gene Krupa, and was a favourite on several television talk shows including the ‘Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, the Mike Douglas Show, the Dick Cavett Show and the Merv Griffin Show. Rich also played for Presidents Roosevelt, Kennedy and Reagan as well as the Queen of England. He was a featured soloist with Boston Pops and London Philharmonic, and was the recipient of a Grammy Presidents Merit Award.
Today, Buddy Rich is remembered as one of history’s greatest musicians and The Lost Tapes is essential viewing for all music fans.
