Alfred Music Publishing is excited to announce its partnership with Drum Channel as the exclusive distributor of two phenomenal drumming DVDs: Buddy Rich Up Close and The Evolution of Tony Royster Jr. In 1982, Buddy Rich filmed three shows over three days at the Statler Hotel in New York. They were never aired—in fact, never edited. This masterpiece is in pristine condition and will be released on Drum Channel as The Buddy Rich Show—coming soon. Buddy Rich: Up Close (http://www.alfred.com/alfredweb/front/ProductDetail.aspx?itemnum=8845011025&pubnum=93
) , is a special edit of The Buddy Rich Show, spotlighting six songs with as many cameras as possible focusing on Buddy and his incredible drumming technique. Not only can you view the show's main edit, but you will also get three different versions of audio as well as a slow motion version! Titles: Love for Sale; Bugle Call Rag; West Side Story; Birdland; Greensleeves; Dancing Men. Buddy Rich: Up Close DVD is now available for $19.95.
