The most famous of drummers in Big Band jazz and Swing, Gene Krupa's reputation continues today nearly 30 years after his death. Only the late Buddy Rich has an equal fame. Krupa without doubt established the drum solo as an integral part of Jazz and later rock. In 1938 he formed his own orchestra. Amongst his band's best known recordings are the vocals with Anita O'Day, featured here. Tracks include; 'Let Me Off Uptown','Ball of Fire','Jungle Madness', 'Drummin' Man', 'Drum Boogie'.
