Product description

These performances trace the evolution of jazz drumming from two-beat to bebop and are a tribute to the drummer - the man who swings the band.

Drummers included are: Baby Dodds, Ben Pollack, Gene Krupa, Big Sid Catlett, Zutty Singleton, Cozy Cole, Buddy Rich, Jo Jones, Specs Powell, George Wettling, Sonny Payne, Louie Bellson, Ray Bauduc, Chick Webb, Mo Purtill, Cuba Austin, Sonny Greer, Panama Francis, Shadow Wilson, Kenny Clarke, Shelly Manne, Don Lamond and many more. 95 tracks, approximately five hours of music, 48 page fully illustrated booklet.
