5.0 out of 5 stars swing music - krupa, eldridge, o'day 20 Jun 2009
Format:Audio Cassette
At first I had mixed feeling about this swing reunion of Krupa with Roy Eldridge and Anita O'Day: it is more of a recreation than a true creation...
But, the thing recreated (with better recording equipment!) is a very swinging big band; Krupa and Roy are as good as they were in the hay-day of swing, Anita O'Day is even better than she had been at the time... So in spite of "theoretical" problem I had initially, the album somehow refused to let go of my CD player...

As far as creation goes, check out the last two tracks: first a truly magnificent Anita O'Day vocal feature (backed up by Roy at his subtlest) and then the closing track, the everlasting standard "After you've gone", where Roy leads with verve and creativity he actually showed quite often in the 50s (but not on every track of this album)....

So, this is a very nice swing album, but mostly for swing fans (as opposed to O'Day and Eldridge recordings from the same decade which have much deeper musical meaning)...
