I wish you well and hope to see you again soon. Lou at the shoe repair shop on Van Nuys Blvd in Sherman Oaks says Hi btw. Much love.

    I remember seeing Mr. & Mrs. Bellson at Emmanuel Baptist Church in San Jose, CA. They were such a kind and loving couple that really cared about the members and community as well. It was always such a wonderful treat to walk in the vestibule and see the array of shiny black and sparkling chrome drums in a variety of sizes. It meant that Mr. Bellson was COMING to play!!! It was so educational for everyone to see first hand one of thee most important instruments played in the band era. Hopefully that footage was captured. My kids were 7 & 12 at the time and now they are 23 and 28 and still remember Mr. Bellson playing the drums with such mastery, precision and style! Thank you most sincerely for those priceless memories! Happy New Year to all and especially Mrs. Bellson! The Bellson Beat is doing a phenomenal job keeping the musical legacy of this icon going for decades!!!

    Still remember the day back in 1977... Louie was playing with Oscar Peterson Trio here in Helsinki and our high school music teacher took us to that concert. It sure blew my mind and Louie's playing still inspires me! Happy New Year from Finland to all drummers around the world!

    A legacy is like a child - it must cared for day and night. Mrs. B has been caring for the LB Legacy for years and we are all so thankful. To quote another great- Keep on Keepin' One!!!!!

    An avid, though untalented drummer, I first heard Mr. B on the jazz radio station in Chicago, c. 2006. They were playing the final track on the CD “Tenor Giants: Zoot Sims & Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ David with Oscar Peterson. I enjoyed the track but had to pull over to turn up the radio and listen to Mr. B’s closing solo: it was beyond belief! Not just his technical expertise but his musicality astounded me. Later on YouTube, I watched The Master at his craft in a drum battle with Buddy Rich on an old Carson show. While both men were competent and entertaining, after hearing the “Tenor Giants” CD, it was clear Mr. B held back, so as not to overshadow Rich—and I’m certain both were aware. A class act all the way around, and a man I came to admire very much. I very much doubt I could oil a Speed King as well as he, much less whack a drumhead..!
