Butch Miles Basie Tribute with Glenn Zottola

Butch Miles is one of the greatest jazz drummers of all time and a really beautiful cat. I had not played with the great Freddie Greene before and I never forgot after my solo I heard him whisper to Milt Hinton “he reminds me of Buck” meaning Buck Clayton. Those are moments in your life that you never forget better than the Grammy’s ! This band sounds a lot bigger than it is just 4 horns 2 trumpets and 2 saxophones. Butch having played with Basie all those years adding Milt Hinton , Freddie Greene and John Bunch make this another “All American Rhythm Section”.
