GENE KRUPA - At His Very Best

Gene Krupa was one of the all time great Jazz drummers. Born in 1909 in Chicago, he began playing drums as a child. In his youth he played along side Benny Goodman and Glen Miller before finding fame with Goodman and eventually leaving due to the inevitable clash of personalities. Teaming up with Tommy Dorsey was an emotional milestone which led to him forming a band of his own which he maintained through out the Forties and which forms the bulk of these recordings - his hey day. In the early Fifties he continued with a smaller group - normally a quartet
