Ayyyy thank you sir. I will add that to my SpotifyHi poco rit!
You can see Buddy's Rogers Celebrity kit in the album "Swingin' New Big Band". I'm sure there are others, but his Rogers really stands out in this LP cover and you can see which songs were played on the back, including his infamous "West Side Story"! Hopefully, others will chime in with more songs!
An amazing album right here!Someone said here recently his playing was a good ‘how to’ for big band. Here ya go. If you - and your band - can do this then you can do anything. And good lord..5 a.m. making a record?? After already doing your gig? On the one hand, superhuman but you can understand why uppers were/are so common for getting through this type of life. On the other hand, this was normal. You go to bed when the straight world gets up. Rinse repeat. The jazz life man..
