Gene Krupa: JATP, 1953
This astounding, newly-discovered concert is actually highlights of a 1953, JATP in Switzerland tour. The opening jam features Flip Phillips, WIllie Smith, Lester Young, Charlie Shavers, J.C. Heard. Oscar Peterson, Barney Kessel and Ray Brown. Track two is the famed ballad medley with the aforementioned. Track five is a Shavers feature and track six a great drum solo by J.C. Heard. Tracks six and seven--get this--feature The Gene Krupa Trio comprised of Gene, WIllie Smith and Oscar Peterson playing Tea For Two and Idaho. Yes, it looks like Idaho was, in fact, a written-out chart, as Willie and OP play the exact lines that Willie played the year before with Gene and Hank Jones at Carnegie Hall. Great fidelity and quite a find!
