Featuring: Buddy Rich

Drum Battle vs Jerry Lewis (1965)
This is more of a comedy routine then a drum battle, but worth watching.

Drum Battle vs Animal
This is one of my favorite clips from the Muppet Show.

Tribute To Ella Fitzgerald With Mel Torme
This shows Buddy playing under some difficult circumstances, and Mel really showing off his scat skills.

Last U.S. Taped Show (Part 1 of 2)
This performance was for a PBS station fundraiser. It was taped in Jan of 87, and Buddy & Mel actually switch roles at one point. Part 2 will be in the Best Of The Rest below.
