Best of the Buddy Rich Show

Episode 1 of 1

The Best of The Buddy Rich Show is a collection of big band performances recorded in 1982 but never broadcast - in fact, never edited. In that year, the legendary drummer was offered the chance to host his own television program. Three programs were filmed at New York City's venerable Statler Hilton Hotel, each featuring Buddy Rich and his band with special guests: Ray Charles, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, and Mel Torme. The best of these performances will be shared on public television in this unique, one of a kind special.
