This Buddy Rich discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Buddy Rich albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Buddy Rich singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.

Active from the swing era on, the king of the drum solo spot remains the mega-talented, acerbic Buddy Rich.
