Louis Bellson with J@TP
From a 1967 edition of Jazz at The Philharmonic, this is perhaps one of the most amazing and entertaining Louis Bellson drum solos I have ever seen:
I've been on a bit of a Louis Bellson kick lately and have been enjoying his playing on such albums as:
"East Side Suite"
I've also meaning to track down the album "Are You Ready For This?" where Louis Bellson meets Buddy Rich in some, allegedly, pretty heated drum exchanges. As Kenny Washington stated to me regarding this particular recording: "Those two were both out for blood on that one!"
