(the title is a tribute to bandleader and master drummer Buddy Rich)
was constructed as an experiment in Apple's 'GarageBand' music program:
it's a fast 12-bar blues, somewhat tongue-in-cheek.
Apple Loops were used for the drums, guitar and brass backing: the remaining
tracks - software organ, bass, sax, clarinet, trumpet and
were played on an Evolution MK149 keyboard (the organ was played on a
Yamaha digital piano - used only as a MIDI keyboard - because it has
the full 88 keys). Some of the instruments are included with
Garageband, some are QuickTime instruments (accessed through an add-on
program) and a couple are separate SoundFonts (playable instrumental
sounds as importable files).
I don't claim it's a musical masterpiece -
the sax in particular (Coleman Hawkins it isn't) - but it is an
interesting demonstration of what can be achieved with what is a quite
cheap music program.
