The Buddy Rich Big Band

Countless musicians have come and gone throughout the 20th century — yet how many have been remembered consistently since that time? With someone like jazz drummer Buddy Rich, it took a certain kind of confluence to become a legend in the pantheon. It’s a confluence that comes from different places. A film like Whiplash enriched the Rich enigma, for instance, or those jaw-dropping tour bus tapes during which Rich explodes at seemingly substandard musicians — recordings that have touched everything from home taping to Seinfeld. A more substantive preservation of the legend comes with the Buddy Rich Big Band, touring his music and legacy. On the traps tonight is the unimpeachable Gregg Potter, accompanied by Rich’s daughter Cathy on vocals and various priceless reflections on Buddy Rich consciousness.
