This legendary album is considered as one of Buddy's best ever recorded. The first 1967 LP release contained 11 tracks and at the 1998 CD remastered release (31 years later), they added 5 more bonus tracks. The quality of this CD is excellent and the content versatile and rewarding. By any means a "must have" for all good jazz hunters. Enjoy.

1966 was a most illogical time for anyone to try forming a new big band but Buddy Rich beat the odds. This CD reissues the first album by the Buddy Rich Orchestra, augmenting the original Lp program with nine previously unissued performances from the same sessions. The arrangements (eight by Oliver Nelson along with charts by Bill Holman, Phil Wilson, Jay Corre, Don Rader and others) swing, put the emphasis on the ensembles and primarily feature Corre's tenor although trumpeter Bobby Shew, altoist Pete Yellin, pianist John Bunch and guitarist Barry Zweig are also heard.An enjoyable and somewhat historic set.

On "Ease on Down The Road", from the early '70s, Rich and his Orchestra wail with the kind of conviction one came to expect from the late drumming virtuoso.Performing now-classic big band tunes such as Don Menza's "Time Check" and "Nuttville" by Horace Silver, this incarnation of the Rich Orchestra swings with conviction, playfulness and dynamism. Tunes such as "Backwoods Sideman" "Three Day Sucker," and "Big Mac" also show Rich's surprisingly fervent proclivity for rock charts. While this album has a dated sound, it is filled with a lot of fiery drum solos, and exquisite horn work. A gem for anybody who loves vigorous, spirited big band music.

The details for this set are very sketchy, but one thing is definite….It sure was a firey performance that night and I rate this as one of Buddy's and his bands best performances.Steve Marcus, Buddy's main & longest serving sideman is on absolutely top form as were the whole band. An electryfing set recorded just 9 months prior to Buddy's death.
