Animal held his own until Buddy went back to the traditional grip. Then it was lights out. Animal was road kill at that point.
No one before or since had hand technique like that - particularly in a jazz. Nor was there ever a drummer that played the jazz big band like he did. Buddy Rich was the only one that ever left me speechless in that context. Sonny Payne did as well but for different reasons.

entertaining but absolutely first rate jazz drumming as well!
