I'm a Long Time admirer of the Late great big band jazz drummer buddy rich.
And many of my albums feature buddy and his various bands.
I much prefer buddy's late 60s and mid 70s bands because much of the music they played sounded really cool.
I absolutely Love the classic "ruth" recorded Live in 1969.
Buddy's Drumming is Incredible in it!
Super fast and spot on perfect.
In fact I have several video's on youtube of myself playing along to ruth and many others.
Of course They aren't as good as Buddy's drumming but I did as best as I was able.
I also admire Charles mingus Drummer Danny Richmond.
I Think he was really Good and did some Great stuff with mingus and with his own bands.
Ed Thigpen is another person I admire.
I think he started off playing for oscar Peterson in the 60s and then became independent later on.
His Later stuff is good as well and I own a few albums which I occasionally play along with on my drum kit.
I have 3 kits in fact.
One electric one which I regret buying now cause I can't get used to having to program it before I use it.
And I also own two acoustic kits.
I decided to link them up and so I now 3 tom toms and two bass drums and two floor toms.
I rarely use two bass drums at once Though.
I have played in a band back in 2009
It was a reggae based band although I prefer Jazz and rock music.
I'd love to be a drummer Professionally
and perhaps Tour the country and Make a living from That one day.
a friend of mine wants to record an album next year and wants me to do the drumming on it.
