BUDDY RICH - THE SOLOS
An unusual album for sure, but one that should hold special interest for Buddy Rich fanatics, the 2014 compilation The Solos, features live recordings made of Rich during various concert dates in the 1970s. Rather than include complete tracks, however, The Solos showcases only Rich's solo improvisations. Perhaps not the best album for background listening or casual enjoyment, The Solos will certainly appeal to fans and music students fascinated by Rich's frenetic, virtuosic swing drumming style. ~ Matt Collar Tracks: Solo 1: Toronto CAN 1977; Solo 2: Germany 1977; Solo 3: Disneyland CA 1976; Solo 4: Sacramento CA 1977; Solo 5: Germany 1977; Solo 6: Binghamton NY 1976; Solo 7: Orlando FL 1976; Solo 8: Montreal CAN 1976; and Solo 9: Boston Globe JazzFest 1976.
