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 from.
He performed a big-band arrangement of a medley from West Side Story that was released on the 1966 album Swingin' New Big Band. The "West Side Story Medley" is a complex big-band arrangement which highlights Rich's ability to blend the rhythm of his drumming into his band's playing of the musical chart. Penned by Bill Reddie, Rich received the West Side Story arrangement of Leonard Bernstein's melodies from the famed musical in the mid-1960s and found it challenging Personality. Rich was notoriously short tempered.
The album Swingin New Big Band contains two extra cuts that were not on the original album,one wth an extened solo. Side note any time you see West Side Story or Channel One Suit on a cd or dvd they are all unickly different and great drum lessons. This was the first jazz album I ever bought. I was totally in awe with the West Side Story suite, particularly the trombone soloist. I literally wore out 2 LP versions of the album. It was great to find a good copy on CD. Highly Recommended.
