  1. Pretty cool. A friend just sent me this, I'd never heard it:

    Never heard "Birdland" or Buddy Rich's version? If you liked that then you should check out the Buddy Rich Big Band doing "Time Check"
  3. Oh, yes I'm abundantly familiar with the Weather Report version. Just thought Buddy and his band slayed it, in a new and really cool way(I never saw an entire brass section playing percussion for example!). And of course Buddy is just...Buddy. He just murdered everything to death, and I mean that as the highest possible compliment. :thumbsup:

    I've always loved BR's big band. If you like that version you might like Maynard Ferguson's () or the Manahattan Trasfer's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxIo6nrgVa4). Our stage band in HS (mid 70's) use to do a lot of MF charts, we use to have a couple of shopping bags of LP instruments that were freely circulated around the horn section.
