Hi 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!

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..

Buddy was mostly on Rogers from around 1961-67 until he fell out with Rogers they took him off the cover half way through '67 and reissued the catalogue without him.

And that was when Buddy signed on as a Trixon endorser, which only lasted about 6 months or so.

The Sammy Buddy album got me realizing, Buddy freaking overplays man. Even during the verses when its not his turn to solo. Its like we get it dude you're a good drummer, but lay back sometimes. He steps all over Sammy in that album and its kind of annoying sometimes. This is just my green opinion. Maybe I haven't listened to enough big band. Its more like Big Noodling
