Buddy Rich Birdland on 180g LP + Download
Lightyear Entertainment and Lobitos Creek Ranch, in association with Scabeba Entertainment and the Buddy Rich Estate, have announced the release of the new live album, Birdland, featuring Buddy Rich and his Killer Force Band at the peak of their performing years.
This rare, previously unreleased, and all original production was recorded with Buddy's permission by bandmate Alan Gauvin, who has also now mixed and edited the project together as this historic eleven track set. The album was mastered by Tom Swift.
The Birdland album is seen in the Academy Award winning 2014 film Whiplash, in the hands of its star Miles Teller, who plays an enterprising young drummer who idolizes Buddy Rich. A must have for long time fans and new aspiring drummers looking to study the sheer talent and wow-factor that earned Buddy the distinction as “the greatest drummer of all time.”
"Birdland is probably the best Buddy Rich album we've released," said Arnie Holland, CEO of Lightyear. "And we are grateful to Whiplash for stimulating so much interest in Buddy and big-band jazz drumming in general."
