Product Description

Gene Krupa is regarded as something of a patron saint of drummers, being responsible for establishing the full drum kit on modern recordings. According to legend, the engineers at his first recording session were aghast when he set up his equipment - every other jazz band only ever used snare drums and cymbals, yet here was Gene setting up assorted cymbals, bass drums and snare drums. He played them with energy and flamboyancy, two traits that perhaps best described Gene away from the world of music. It is no surprise that The Who's own drummer Keith Moon cited Gene Krupa as a major influence on his own career - Gene Krupa was the Keith Moon of his generation! Here's Gene's master opus with Benny Goodman, 'Sing! Sing! Sing!', plus a generous selection of top items from Krupa's own hugely popular band including the top 10 smash 'Let Me Off Uptown' featuring vocals by the multi-talented Roy Eldridge and the sublime Anita O'Day.

Although all the songs on the album are good, they are tracks where Gene Krupa merely appears-very few solos. I expected more of his playing and less of the vocals and other soloists. Disappointing.

We were talking about great drummers from the past. I remembered the name Gene Krupa from seeing brief clips on television many years ago. A bit of research on the internet and lo and behold we've rediscovered him on Amazon. Listen to a drummer who would wow an audience today just as he did then.
