I dunno how old Buddy Rich was here (looks like it must have been just before he died, which was age 69 (dudes!)), but he still had fucking chops for days!
Aye me too. I respect the shit out of jazz musicians, I just don't particularly enjoy listening to jazz. Then again, 90% of what I listen to are songs about either pirates, the devil, or how metal the band is..Yeah, he's awesome as crap. I wish I liked jazz more as a whole instead of just bits and pieces, because they are some of the best musicians out there.

I'm in that odd minority where I can just as easily tune my radio/internet radio to any jazz station (especially fusion and a lot of that wonderful 80s gold) and just listen to it for hours.I'm in that odd minority where I can just as easily tune my internet radio to any jazz station (except fusion or a lot of the 80s junk) and just listen to it for hours. And Buddy Rich was an amazing talent. These guys did so much to push every ounce of technique they possibly could.
Do you have the Live at the Filmore East discs? It was recorded after he recorded Bitches... but before it came out. It's probably my favorite release of his (even over Kind of Blue and Bitches Brew)One of my favorite jazz musicians has always been Miles Davis and, despite what a bunch of haters say, I think his 80s albums were amazing too, though I do have to say that the 50s and 60s were where he was at his peak (which, of course, falls in line with the majority since everyone worships at the foot of Kind of Blue, which I have to admit is one of the greatest albums ever made).
