Wikipedia : This day (February 14, 2009), in Los Angeles, California, died Luigi Paulino Alfredo Francesco Antonio Balassoni a.k.a. Louie Bellson, an Italian-American jazz drummer and bandleader.

Official Site : Described by Duke Ellington as “not only the world’s greatest drummer…(but also) the world’s greatest musician,” Louie Bellson had expressed himself on drums since age three.

@Drummerworld : The sensitive side of Bellson is also in evidence on one volume of another legendary pairing, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald (Verve label). His significant work with Duke Ellington, including Bellson’s own composition Skin Deep, can be obtained on Duke Ellington Uptown from 1952 (Columbia label)

@last.fm : With the exception of Bob Hope, who has made the most White House appearances, Bellson holds, along with his late wife Pearl Bailey, the second highest number of White House appearances.
