Recorded at the Indiana Jazz Festival, November 1966, this is a fantastic set from The Gene Krupa’s Quartet. Krupa leads the Quartet through a lively set with the amazing but underappreciated Saxophonist Eddie Shu. Shu straddles his main early influence, Lester Young and his admiration of Coltrane. One of the highlights of the set is an energetic Drum Boogie. You’ll want to hear the music of this Quartet from the Drummer Buddy Rich said, “Gene is absolutely the first man when it comes to drums. The inspiration for every big-name drummer in the business today…This is the President.”
