Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This 60-minute battle of the beat-masters showcases 15 jazz-drumming giants in extended solos and rarely seen drum duels filmed over the last five decades. Among the highlights are uncut solos from big band legends Sonny Payne, Rufus Jones, Buddy Rich, Sam Woodyard, and Louie Bellson, plus such combo-centric percussionists as Art Blakey and Joe Morello. Rare drum battles include meetings between: Gene Krupa and Cozy Cole; Buddy Rich and Ed Shaughnessy; Chico Hamilton, Gene Krupa and Lionel Hampton; Elvin Jones, Sunny Murray and Art Blakey; and a once-in-a-lifetime battle between Buddy Rich and...Jerry Lewis!
