Reseña de álbum

During the last years of his life, Gene Krupa suffered from more than his share of health problems, including leukemia, emphysema, heart disease, and severe back pain. But despite all he went through, the drummer was still able to provide some inspired performances here and there. One of them came on April 17, 1973, when he was joined by tenor saxman Eddie Shu, pianist John Bunch, and bassist Nabil Total at the New School in New York. That performance, recorded only six months before Krupa's death, went unreleased for 26 years but finally saw the light of day when Chiaroscuro put out Live at the New School in 1999.

With his good looks and colorful playing, he became a matinee idol and changed the image of drummers forever. Gene Krupa made history with his first record. For a session in 1927 with the McKenzie-Condon Chicagoans, he became the first musician...
