Gene Krupa's most famous band was the one he led during 1941-42 that featured vocalist Anita O'Day and trumpeter Roy Eldridge, and this collection spotlights a band almost on par with the aforementioned ensemble. Krupa's drumming is inspired throughout, and supports the fine charts with intermittent snare drum pops and a light hi-hat swing.
Few drummers could stir a crowd the way the frenetic Gene Krupa could, and these recordings of many old warhorses bring the man and his music to life. Swinging versions of classics such "Drum Boogie," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "St. Louis Blues," "Tuxedo Junction," and "Sweet Georgia Brown" are featured among others, together with the sultry vocals of Irene Daye.
