The worlds greatest drummer, Buddy Rich, is at the helm of this happy, driving small group in two sessions from and one of them remained unreleased for many yearsthat feature the stirring playing of multi-reedman Sam Most and Richs young discovery, the astonishing vibraphonist Mike Mainieri. Both Most and Mainieri who also did most of the groups writing are abundantly inventive soloists, while the buoyantly effective rhythm section is a Rich archetype.
With the leader keeping the drum solos within reasonable limitsmostly breathtakingly brilliant four or eights, and passages ingeniously integrated with the rhythmic patterns of the ensemblethis is one of his tightest small groups. As a bonus, this set includes tracks from rare radio broadcasts aired in Octoberduring one of the bands appearances at Birdland. Though known mainly as a big band drummer, Rich demonstrates, through his breathtaking virtuosity and versatility, that he could electricfy an ensemble of any size or any style.
His finesse, control, and taste were simply astonishing. Tracklisting: CD 1 Lulus Back in Town Dubin-Warren Playtime Sam Most Will You Playtime buddy needed tonight Be Mine?

Sergeant Jim Collins, master of ceremonies. The whole package comprises about minutes of fine small-group music, driven by Buddy Rich's stimulating drums. Buddy was equally useful in big bands and small groups but one advantage of his small-group recordings is that you hear more of Buddy, especially playing four-bar breaks.
Skilful arrangements by Mike Mainieri on the first eight tracks and some others make the best use of the small band, as in Makin' Whoopee, where the relaxed arrangement ends with a series of jokey double notes. Buddy Rich doesn't hog the limelight, although he does some fantastic solos. His longest solo is probably on The Surrey with the Fringe on Top, a performance at Playtime buddy needed tonight speed which also illustrates Mike Mainieri's agility. But Rich is equally good at spurring the band with just-right emphases and accents, as in Cheek to Cheek.
As well as Buddy, the most prominent soloist is Sam Most, whose versatility is evident on the first eight tracks, where he plays three instruments he stays with the flute for the remainder of the album. Vibist Mike Mainieri also gets well-deserved solo space.
Mainieri was given his first big opportunity by Buddy Rich, and Mike certainly was a find: not only a skilful arranger but also a talented vibes-player. He produces an acceptable solo on Playtime and a sparklingly fast muted solo on Marbles. The mixture of Buddy Rich's extrovert drumming with the delicate flute and vibes makes a piquant contrast. For instance, Fascinating Rhythm opens with a slow, plaintive introduction from the flute before the whole group swings into a fast tempo.
As with nearly all Buddy's recordings, the music swings along irresistibly.
And the combination of Mainieri, Most and Rich is irresistible. Add to cart. Add to wishlist. No customer reviews yet. to leave your impressions! Submit or Cancel.
