Bernard "Buddy" Rich (September 30, 1917 – April 2, 1987) was an American jazz drummer and bandleader. He is considered one of the most influential drummers of all time and was known for his virtuoso technique, power, and speed. He performed with Tommy Dorsey, Harry James and Count Basie, and led a big band. Rich was born in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York, to Jewish-American parents Bess Skolnik and Robert Rich, both vaudevillians.

Buddy Rich, the most remarkable drummer to ever play jazz, can easily have his career divided into three. During 1937-1945 he was a notable sideman with big bands including those of Bunny Berigan, Artie Shaw, and Tommy Dorsey. During the 20 years in between, Rich led short-lived bebop big bands, a variety of combos, toured with Jazz at the Philharmonic, recorded with all-star groups, and had stints with the orchestras of Dorsey and Harry James

To view this video download Flash Player. This gem of a recording captures Buddy Rich and his amazing Killer Force Band at their best during a live performance. Though a few sound blips are present, the recording quality is otherwise excellent. Buddy sounds amazing as usual, and the trumpet section is perhaps Buddy's best ever. The liner notes incorrectly identify Chuck Schmidt, when it is in fact Dave Stahl playing lead on this album. You can hardly go wrong with any Buddy Rich album, except that the earliest few, from the mid-sixties, sounded a little postwar-ish, not quite contemporary. By the time of this album, however, the arrangements were starting to be quite funky and not the least bit "retro" any more.
