Butch Miles is one of the truly great drummers of all time in jazz and a really great person. He is on a half dozen of my early albums and I am on the same of his. We also shared a quartet together and worked with Bob Wilber for several years in the Bechet Legacy and did many jazz festivals together. This is a track from one of Butch’s early album’s tribute to Gene Krupa which I believe has been re-issued on CD that I included on my anthology “A Jazz Life” which has tracks from over 50 albums I have done. “World Jazz” who bought the whole Famous Door catalogue which Butch and I recorded for early on graciously gave my current record label permission to use this track from the Famous Door catalogue on my anthology.
