Comments about WB Gene Krupa Jazz Legend DVD:
Gene Krupa is my all-time favorite drummer still to this day. Watching him play Big Noise from Winnetka literally gave me goosebumps. It's just his touch on the drums, his melodic phrases and of course his tom work. If you're a drummer, you MUST know about Gene Krupa, as he's one of the first historically significant drum set players, and his influence is not measurable. This DVD does a very very good job of showcasing the highlights, although I'd prefer more performance clips. Simply a must for any drummer.
