Album Review

This two-LP box set which came out in the 1960s (but can still be found in some collector's shops) has 32 of the best recordings by Gene Krupa's big band. All of the drummer's hits are here including "Drummin' Man," "Drum Boogie," "Bolero at the Savoy," "Let Me Off Uptown," "Rockin' Chair," "After You've Gone," "Leave Us Leap," "Body and Soul," "Opus #1" and "Disc Jockey Jump." In addition to Krupa, the stars on these often-classic swing sides include trumpeter Roy Eldridge, singer Anita O'Day, altoist Charlie Kennedy and tenorman Charlie Ventura among others. Since this was the definitive Krupa set, it is a pity that Columbia has not reissued all of the music intact on CD yet.

swing is here

you dont get any better than this. krupa's best collection is a dynamic show of swing drumming at its best. sing sing sing obviously tops it, but all are worth it. inspiration for my drumming. enough said

Thanks Soprano's!

The song Sing!, Sing!, Sing! was featured at the end of The Soprano's, episode 80. I really liked this a lot. I didn't know much about Gene Krupa prior to that episode but i liked what I heard and after sampling the music here, I downloaded Drummin' Man. Result: I'm amazed at his talent, he did play with Benny Goodman, Eddie Condon and Glenn Miller during his career. This is just a fantastic album and I wouldn't have discovered it had it not been on The Soprano's. I highly recommend purchasing this.

Timeless

Light a jazz cigarette, shake up a martini and enjoy. No doubt, Gene will be there.

The first drummer to be a superstar, Gene Krupa may not have been the most advanced drummer of the 1930s but he was in some ways the most significant. Prior to Krupa, drum solos were a real rarity and the drums were thought of as a merely supportive instrument. With his good looks...
