Buddy Rich: Still Leaves Me Breathless

152005_garychester_buddy_0005[Buddy] Rich’s solo is as exciting now as it has been for the last three decades. His rolls between tom-toms and bass still sound like thunder; his licks are still the cleanest and fastest in the world. I know every paradiddle and press roll by heart — and it still leaves me breathless.
