Here's a great performance by John Zorn's Masada Quartet live at Warsaw Summer Jazz Days 1999, Poland. Someone has dropped a lot of Zorn's Polish performances on YouTube which is great for us all to see how this band works.

Animal vs Buddy Rich

Here's a fun little thing. Animal is the very favourite of my daughter, Fizzy D. I could just imagine Grant Collins doing a gig like this!

Animal's drumming was done by Ronnie Verrell....for those interested he was one of the greatest session drummers in Britain during his day (pre-rock). Buddy Rich is holding back a lot here...
