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.
