Description
The only big band drummer remotely in Louie Bellson's league was Buddy Rich. Bellson's mastery as a percussionist and leader pervades this collection, which includes "Sunshine Swing," "Chameleon," "Melody for Thelma," "Intimacy of the Blues," "Movin' On," "Niles' Blues," "Quiet Riots," "I Wonder Why," and "Night Birds."

"Bellson's long experience in guiding the bands of Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman from the drum chair flowered into maturity with Ellington. His then unique device of using two pedal-operated bass drums gave the band a new power, and yet his playing was always tasteful.... Where Rich was flashy, Bellson was more subtle and complemented the music of the bands in which he played.... Bellson was perhaps the only man who could play a 15-minute drum solo and sustain the rapt attention of an audience."The Independent
