As the title implies, The Instrumental Mr. Krupa features Krupa and his band -- including tenor saxophonist Charlie Ventura -- tearing it up on an instrumental set. "Limehouse Blues," "Stompin' at the Savoy," "King Porter Stomp," "Up an Atom," and "Idaho" are some of the highlights from this energetic, entertaining album. ~ Heather Phares
