Matt Waldman’s RSP: Listens (August 24, 2018)

Matt Waldman’s Reads Listens Views is back in a slightly new form. This post is devoted to recommended listens of the week. 


If you’re new to the Rookie Scouting Portfolio blog, welcome.  Every Friday, I post links to pieces that I’ve found personally compelling or to content I hope will eventually scratch that itch when I get around to listening to it.

You may not like everything listed here, but you’re bound to like something.

I highly recommend the last video of this post. Start there…


I knew some guys who played with Buddy Rich. The stories about him as a bandleader are hilarious and terrifying drama depending whether you were a participant, up-close observer, or after-the-fact audience.  One of them involved an argument that ended with Rich ordering the driver to stop the band’s tour bus, forcing one of his trumpet players from the vehicle on the shoulder of I-95 in Miami, and telling him to walk the rest of the way to the gig.

He was a hell of a drummer.

How the sausage is made…


Oh yeah.

Makes you think…
