1955, Gene Krupa & Buddy Rich: Krupa And Rich

This session with Krupa And Rich is filled with a fast-paced, playful, an all together exciting sound. Krupa makes his drums drums dance, while Rich's swings with his playful, hard thunderous technique. The two interplay with no real sense of competition. Other musicians in this session consist of  Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Illinois Jacquet and Flip Phillips on tenor sax, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Herb Ellis on rhythm. A great performance and collaboration of these two jazz percussionist masters.

Not only is Mark Price an amazing artist, illustrator and
designer, he also composes music.
"Bad Shape" is an album full of beeps, boops, electronic drums, piano,
guitars, vocals and snippets of sounds. A truly awesome album.
It comes packaged with color insert and screen printed disc in plastic sleeve.

I often listen to Marks music when I have to clear my head.
Also a perfect album if you're working like a machine.

Besides his music and other works, Mark has another project
called "CARS WILL BURN". Truly a mind-blowing experience, and an
extremely awesome live performance. I feel so psychotic if I listening for
more than an hour. I'm looking forward to seeing what Mark comes up with next.
