...and that was Richard Attenborough, of "The Great Escape" fame (among other movies) sitting behind that guy.
Pretty good solo! Never knew he could play.

Loved The Prisoner. I need to watch Danger Man and Ice Station Zebra, when I can find the time.

I watched this movie last night via Amazon ($3.99 rental). It was pretty good. McGoohan plays a real P.O.S. guy (who, of course, is a drummer) that attempts to manipulate everyone around him at a party, trying to get a married couple to break up because he needs the wife to return to singing jazz so he can get her into his band and land a big gig. McGoohan even gets a "friend" to take up smoking weed again. The story is based on Othello. Dave Brubeck shows up and plays a version of "It's a Raggy Waltz". "Chas" Mingus is also hanging around.

Two drum sets are on display. I think one was a Trixon (maybe) but in standard sizes, not conical or egg shaped, and the other a Sonor. I'm not that up on European made drums to say for sure. One set used a very early "power tom" on the bass drum. There was also a set of Ludwig (or WFL) timbales put to use at one point.

Overall, I enjoyed it, worth the four bucks rental. Decent story (Shakespeare after all) and some cool jazz of the era.
