Bernard “Buddy” Rich (September 30, 1917 – April 2, 1987) was an American jazz drummer and bandleader. Widely considered one of the most influential drummers of all time and known for his virtuoso technique, power, and speed, Rich was billed as “the world’s greatest drummer” during his career. He performed with many bandleaders, most notably Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Count Basie, and led his own big band.

Fred Stone was born in Toronto Canada – a wonderful trumpet and flugelhorn player, composer and wit. He toured with Duke 70-71 and this clip is from a gig in Italy. Duke said when asked about Fred “I don’t know what he’s doing but he sure does it well”. We all love and miss Freddie!

Venus sang a song to NASA’s solar probe – listen to it right here

NASA’s description reads as follows:

The data sonification in the video translates data from Parker Solar Probe’s FIELDS instrument into sound. FIELDS detected a natural, low-frequency radio emission as it moved through Venus’ atmosphere that helped scientists calculate the thickness of the planet’s electrically charged upper atmosphere, called the ionosphere. Understanding how Venus’ ionosphere changes will help researchers determine how Venus, once so similar to Earth, became the world of scorching, toxic air it is today.

Pretty cool, huh?
