5.0 out of 5 stars The Daddy of 'em all. 28 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a jazz album alone this is worth five stars.When you know the history of the concert it becomes a most moving tribute to the man whom drummers regard as the "Daddy" of 'em all. The producer of the concert had been unable to contact Krupa for several weeks before the gig and was worried that he might not show up.On the night he saw Krupa in the doorway,clearly distressed and in pain.He had been in hospital being treated for the leukaemia which would help to kill him later that same year,and to add to his woes his house had been burned down and all his memorabilia lost.The producer said he would cancel,and records that Krupa gave him a grin and said that he would take some painkillers and do the gig. The result was fantastic.
Not only does Krupa not miss a beat...he takes three extended solos which had the audience roaring for more.Aided by multi-instrumentalist Eddie Shu,pianist John Bunch,and bassist Nobby Totah Krupa is amazing. On "Drum Boogie" he shows what a powerhouse he was.On "Caravan" he demonstrates hand independence and great taste,and on "Sing Sing Sing" we find that he can find new things to say even on a number that he has played thousands of times before ,and still confine himself to the tom-toms.The excitement he generates is beyond belief.
That same year Buddy Rich said that he tried to cancel one of his own gigs to see Krupa,such was his love for the man. This album shows you why.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a sad cd to listen to 30 Aug 2014

This is a sad cd to listen to. Krupa was needing blood transfusions in order to play. He is not playing at his best. Perhaps should still be in everyone's collection as was his last recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tough Old Master Shows The Kids That He Still Has It 2 Nov 2002
By peter krampert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Gene Krupa Fanatic since the very first time that I heard him play the drums. His work with Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, with others and as a solo artist firmly planted at the very pinnacle of what a great drummer should be.
This CD, recorded live shortly before his death in 1973, shows beyond any doubts was arguably the greatest drummer who ever lived. Dying of leukemia, Krupa required a blood transfusion before the performance in order to have enough strength to play the gig. The performance shows a combination of power and grace that very few drummer ever achieve at any stage of their careers.
I originally purchased this CD in order to hear a rare harmonica performance by the great Eddie Shu, who plays beautifully on Duke Ellington's "Caravan". Definitely worth the purchase. The best part of this CD, however is listening to Krupa. About half of the songs are long jams and he holds up like a trooper through the whole thing. His small band version of the classic "Sing, Sing, Sing" shows off the subtlety that you might miss in the earlier Carnegie Hall version with Benny Goodman's band.
This CD is a masterpiece and anybody who is interested in learning to be a great drummer needs to have this recording in their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars David A. Lang 29 Jun 2000
By David A.Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So near his death we have been rewarded with a great albumn reminscent of his small group playing durin his later years. It could have been recorded at the legedary Metropole, Theatrical or London House as those tunes and personel gave us live of what we heard and knew of Gene. We waited for this one and there will never be another you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop Listening 24 Dec 2012
By Ken Provus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gene Krupa has to be my favorite musician. His range of styles and showmanship are impressive. This was his last recording, done about a month before he died. He was quite ill, but you would not know it from the performance. He made his drums speak in this live event with his quartet, this is some musical coda.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Drum's Goodbye 25 July 2012
By Frederico Lunardelli Ponzio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is maybe the last Krupa record, i think.
Was record live 6 months before his death in 1973.

Well.....this is simply one of the best Krupas record!

He is playing very very well, minimalist with a fantastic creativity in his quartet...

A beautyfull goodbye with from this man that gave so much contribuition to the drums history.
