Buddy Rich - Buddy & Soul (2000) Retail CD
This album came at an interesting time for Buddy and his band as they were playing sets at the famous Fillmore Clubs alongside bands such as Ten Years After and The Who, (which now seems almost impossible too imagine ! ). Buddy, who always wanted to reach younger audiences, did so by playing these clubs but also by playing pop tunes of the day in a big band style.This does not suit every big band fan, or indeed fans of Buddy's first few Pacific Jazz albums, but this record sold well on its original release charting both here and America, enough to prove to Buddy that this choice of material wasmore… working. Virtually all the tunes are in a funky late 60's style and are arranged perfectly to fit the bands aggressive, hard hitting style.This album would have caused a stir among the Jazz purists of the day but again, Buddy being Buddy, was more than happy to show critic's and fans alike that he was of the then, rather than the past. The album today sounds a little weak against Buddy's other recorded out-put, but the album proves to be popular with the 'funky-cheesey-Austin Powers' type D.J.'s and listeners, and is worth listening to just to check how well Buddy can play these rock grooves alongside drummers 20 years his junior,(check out 'Ruth' for some really awesome playing ! ). His playing and the band sound exciting on this album which does have a certain charm and now with the extra added bonus tracks it makes for an entertaining listen.So, get hip to the jive Daddio, Buddy And The Band Are Gonna Groove For Ya Man...Yeah Baby Yeah !
