More classic jazz from Hudson Music, this video features over 20 of the legendary musicians and unsung greats of jazz percussion in solos, in "battle" and in the groups they helped make famous. Highlights include films of the legendary Sid Catlett with Louis Armstrong, Ray Bauduc with Jack Teagarden, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich with their own orchestras, Gus Johnson with the rarely heard Count Basie small group, Joe Harris with the pioneering Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, Panama Francis with Cab Calloway, Lionel Hampton's Band, never-before-seen solo footage of Philly Joe Jones, singular small-group examples of Stan Levey and the groundbreaking bop of Kenny Clarke and many others. A certifiable find is the bonus track: The only existing film of that influential New Orleans' pioneer, the one and only Warren "Baby" Dodds. Classic Jazz Drummers: Swing Era and Beyond presents six decades of legendary drummers soloing, battling, but above all fulfilling their most important musical role: driving the band. 60 minutes.
