Album Review

Guitarist Eddie Condon and drummer Gene Krupa made their recording debut together in 1927, and this CD reissues their final recordings from 45 years later. Recorded in a classroom, the live concert has a quintet consisting of the always-exciting cornetist Wild Bill Davison (the star of the date), Kenny Davern on soprano, the great stride pianist Dick Wellstood, who made up for the absence of a bass, Condon and Krupa.

This was the perfect close to the colorful careers of Gene Krupa and, particularly, Eddie Condon.
