Movie Reviews

Another excellent Krupa film!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a must have for Krupa fans, drummers, Benny Goodman fans, and jazz lovers everywhere! Dr. Klauber has released another great film on GK, and even though the visual quality of the clips may be a little fuzzy, it is only expected due to their age, and does not diminish Krupa's show-stopping performances. The inverview w/ Gene is great, too. Also, the DVD includes three clips that the video does not and has a large photo gallery."
A must for the Krupa fan

"If you are a Krupa fan then look no further. If you not, and play drums, you have to check this out. Gene Krupa is one of the most important drummers in the history of drumming and this dvd shows why. Great job."

"I enjoyed this introspective of a guy who really enjoyed playing the drums. This video has wonderful solo clips in various atmospheres and periods of his life. Any musician who wants to swing, acknowledge dynamics and rhythms, should study the performance pieces. Now if only a filmaker could make a documentary on Charles Mingus or Artie Shaw, this presentable to people like myself, who are mere "tourists" in the jazz world."

"Ive looked for a long time to find videos of Gene Krupa. Yup-I am a drummer & he has been my main influence ever since I was old enough to pick up a pair of sticks. This dvd was meant for anyone who plays drums. Come & see the all time master. Some have come close but not many can top the pure genius of Gene playing solo drums. Also good are the insights he himself gives. What a great dvd!!!!!!"
