Dave Black

Thanks to Phil Stewart who posted this one via the Facebook:

Black was one of the great post-WWII swing drummers who, among others, played with the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Apparently, as legend has it, he was also one of the very few drummers that made Buddy Rich nervous. From the footage above, perhaps you can hear why...


  1. Indeed! His skills would make every drummer nervous.

  2. Thanks for posting this. What a fantastic drummer!
