Distant memories revived,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Razor Sharp Rhythm (Audio CD)
This double disc is a veritable bargain as it presents two albums by two of the best jazz drummers of all time for around a fiver. I had not heard the "Krupa and Rich" album previously so was pleasantly surprised to hear such excellent reproduction of a recording that's now over 50 years old.
With regard to "Burnin' Beat", I have been interested in drums and the playing thereof since childhood. My dad used to work with a chap called John who played drums in a jazz band, and when he found out I was interested he invited me down to listen to his group practice - quite something for a lad of 5 or 6 years of age.
Some time later we emigrated to South Africa and when we were leaving, John gave me his copy of "Burnin' Beat" as a leaving present : it's long since been worn out, so it's great to be able to hear it again after all these years. Personal favourites are "Duet" and "Evolution". Happy memories have been revived again!
