Scott K Fish: When did you first hear Buddy Rich?

Ed Soph: At a Jazz at the Philharmonic concert. Buddy, Gene Krupa, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald.

I don’t think I’d every heard Buddy on record before that. I didn’t get blown out by Buddy. I got blown out by Krupa. Krupa made me feel better when he played time and all. It just felt so good and so happy.
