Buddy Rich, Jazz Legend: Part 1 presents the life, the music and the astounding percussion virtuosity of the man who will be forever known as “the world’s greatest drummer.” Rich is featured in extremely rare performance footage from 1939 to 1970 with the bands of Artie Shaw, Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, as a leader of his own small groups and big bands, and in a once-in-a-lifetime, five-minute drum duel with Gene Krupa. Adding incisive commentary are narrator Mel Torme, Buddy’s daughter Cathy, family and friends, musical associates and the legend himself – Buddy Rich.
