Don’t miss this special offer featuring the Buddy Rich Show, Buddy Rich: Up Close, and The 2008 Buddy Rich Memorial Concert bundled into one special 3 DVD set.
The Buddy Rich Show
This is perhaps the last unseen footage of Buddy Rich that is out there. In 1982 Buddy Rich filmed 3 shows at the Statler Hotel. These are those tapes remastered and edited to show the master in his prime featuring guests such as Woody Herman, Ray Charles, Stan Getz, Lionel Hampton, Mel Torme and Gerry Mulligan.
Buddy Rich Up Close
See and Hear the Master at Work! Classic Buddy Rich tunes performed live in 1982. Never-before released, includes special audio tracks. The technique, musicality, intensity, and dedication that Buddy brings to music he plays leave many saying: “He is the greatest drummer in the world – a genius – there will never be another Buddy Rich.” In 1982, Buddy did three shows over three days as a pilot for a jazz television series with guests Mel Tormé, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Ray Charles, Anita O’ Day, Stan Getz, and Lionel Hampton. This DVD spotlights six of Buddy’s classic tunes that he played with the band during that show. We re-edited these tunes to focus every possible camera on Buddy throughout the entire tune, so you’ll see the “master at work” at all times. Not only do you get the standard audio mix, you get an additional two audio mixes: one with the band hot so you can play along, with Buddy in the background; the other with Buddy hot so you can hear the nuances in his time, feel, and technique. Buddy’s playing is unique; he plays not just with his hands and feet, but also with every fiber of his being.
