Buddy Rich meets Hugh Hefner
Some interesting and rare footage here today of Buddy Rich joking around with Hugh Hefner and a room full of Playboy bunnies:
This particular group is probably my favorite Buddy Rich small group that featured a young Mike Maineri on vibraphone and Sam Most on flute. John Riley hipped me to the album "Blues Caravan" awhile back that features this same group and has become one of my favorite Buddy Rich recordings outside of his more well-known big band work.
