The influence of Buddy Rich on big band drumming is undeniable! He built his reputation on uncompromising standards and was known for his show-stopping tour-de-force numbers like Bill Reddie's Channel One and West Side Story suites. This original piece draws influences from there and other Buddy Rich tunes and offers your drummer a chance in the spotlight. There is a stop-time winds passage and written-out improv solos for tenor sax 1 and trumpet 2.
