An Introduction to Gene Krupa - His Best Recordings 1927 to 1947
JazzLegends.com gets a large volume of mail asking what would be the best example of an introduction to Gene Krupa CD. This French compilation, issued 10 years ago, may it. The 22 tracks cover Gene's career from 1927 until 1947. There are tracks from McKenzie and Condon's Chicagoans, the Mound City Blue Blowers, Jess Stacy's Trio, early recordings of the Goodman Trio and Quartet, the original version of Sing Sing Sing (not the Carnegie Hall version), early recordings by Gene's first band and the best of the second band. A great gift item for the drum fan in the family and/or for all who may not have all of these tracks.
