Buddy rich superstar jesus christ superstar a different drummer


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 2.5 stars stating

The material varies widely on this LP from the Buddy Rich big band. Certainly the two numbers from "Jesus Christ Superstar," Van Morrison's "Domino" and the four-song "A Piece of the Road Suite" make one think that Rich and his musicians are trying too hard to get with it. Fortunately, there are also versions of "Straight, No Chaser" and "Chelsea Bridge" included, plus good solos from tenor saxophonist Pat LaBarbera (who is well featured) and altoist Jimmy Mosher, along with high-note work from trumpeter Lin Biviano. The album is very much a mixed bag, not too essential but containing some enjoyable moments.
