Label: Pacific Jazz | First release: 1967 | Jazz, big band, swing

This legendary album is considered as one of Buddy's best ever recorded. The first 1967 LP release contained 11 tracks and at the 1998 CD remastered release (31 years later), they added 5 more bonus tracks. The quality of this CD is excellent and the content versatile and rewarding. By any means a "must have" for all good jazz hunters. Enjoy.

Despite its title, this was actually the third album by Buddy Rich's still-new big band. The recording is taken from two different periods that, although only five months apart, find the band undergoing some major turnover; only six of the 15 sidemen are the same. With such players as altoist Ernie Watts, trumpeter Chuck Findley, and usually Jay Corre on tenor, this was a strong outfit. Most of the material (other than "Chicago" and "I Can't Get Started") was new; among the high points are "The Rotten Kid," "New Blues," and the complex "Diabolus."
All Music
I've been playng this album for nearly 30 years, first vinyl and now CD. I'd have to say that, as an album, this is the best one Buddy ever made in terms of the quality of the material, the band, and the production. This was the third of I believe six albums Buddy did for Pacific Jazz from 1966-70, and the folks there really knew how to capture a big band performance. What's remarkable here is that, unlike the other five PJ albums, this one was recorded entirely in the studio, where it can be difficult to capture the spontaneity and electricity more common during a live performance. Of course, a lot of that is attributable to the musicians themselves. This could be "the best band he ever had." Standout soloists include the great Ernie Watts on alto, Chuck Findley on trumpet, and Jay Corre, one of my favorite tenors. Jay not only had the technique, but played with such a depth of feeling, he could send chills down your spine. (According to the liner notes, Buddy actually cried during Jay's rendition of "I Can't Get Started.") A tremendous talent. I don't know whatever happened to him - he sort of disappeared after this date. And of course, there's the incomparable Buddy Rich. Save for "Diabolus," he doesn't take many extended solos, and that's fine because it showcases this wonderful band as a whole, spurred on by his relentless driving beat.
As for the tunes, there is not a bum in the lot. Buddy's band played a lot of charts equal to or greater than those here, but on his other albums, the quality is more hit-or-miss, particularly during the RCA years in the 70's when most of the bands were abandoning straight-ahead swing for rock and funk. I believe that this album marks the first appearance of Don Piestrup's charts ("New Blues" and "Group Shot")….
Like a few other reviewers have said, the bonus tracks are always welcome. Most of them here are alternate takes, and you can see why. (They're all good - just not as good as the ones released.) One particular standout is the previously unreleased "Old Timey," which will leave you wondering why that one was left on the cutting room floor.
