Louie Bellson

Luigi Paulino Alfredo Francesco Antonio Balassoni, who performs as Louie Bellson, was an American jazz drummer. He is one of the few jazz drummers to be considered a worthy rival for Buddy Rich.Regarded by Duke Ellington as "the world's greatest drummer", Bellson was a composer, arranger, bandleader and a tireless jazz educator who pioneered the use of two bass drums, and in terms of the speed of his hands and feet and the wonderful, percussive "ideas" he conveys on the drums, stands next to only Buddy Rich as the total technician.
