No, those Max tracks are taken from one of his own albums.

The Band That Played Too Fast (blame the leader).

Still, a kick to hear Don Menza & Charles Owens, for various reasons. But that shit is too damn fast. It doesn't ahve to be, but for this band it is. The difference between this band and the ones before is palpable.

Different night, they start off pretty wooden, and then through "Machine", something happens, maybe Menza, but it happens. Funny how that shit works sometimes, nothing's happening and then it is.

Wow - ‘Jazz at the Maltings’. I thought that the BBC had wiped over the tapes for the whole of that series.

B-3 Buddy Band.

It's things like this that make me think that sometimes Buddy's bands didn't swing, but not because of Buddy, he's swinging harder than his band. That Pacific Jazz-era band did not have that problem.

The thing I always notice when I watch videos of Buddy playing is just how much he really LOVED playing the drums. There seems to be real joy in the madness.

Hey, here's another one. CRAZY first tune -- Bill Reddie's "Machine" with choreography that's half West Side Story and half elementary school playground. Dig the band going in circles on space age teeter-totters and Jay Corre getting pushed around in a wagon during his solo. Obviously,, it's all dubbed, but Rich makes a joke about it to Greco after the number: "All that with two drums!"

 

 

Apparently Buddy would have been ready for this!

This is exactly right. That's the biggest problem with the post-1969 bands. Too many college kids. Plus, the electric bass exacerbates the issue. Not because it's not "pure jazz" or "authentic" but because the attack, timbre and texture of the electric instrument doesn't have the weight, warmth or pop ("hump") an acoustic bass when walking quarter notes. So the beat sounds thin. Not helpful when the band is already sounding thin and too on-top to swing.
