This essential Dutton Vocalion jazz reissue brings together two of the greatest American drummers with two of the greatest British drummers. Conversations, originally issued on Parlophone in 1972, captures the drumnastics of Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson and Kenny Clare driving along the Bobby Lamb-Ray Premru big band. Repercussion, issued in 1967 on EMI, throws the spotlight on Eric Delaney and Louie Bellson, who power their way through twelve tunes that include superb arrangements of numbers not normally associated with jazz including Scotland the Brave and The British Grenadiers.
