- Includes original theatrical trailer for The Gene Krupa Story
Top Customer Reviews
My idol is Louie Belson, and the clip showing his does not disappoint. I loved the clip with Cozy Cole and Gene Krupa. I think Krupa was a great drummer and superb showman, but Cozy Cole blew him away in the short clip with the two of them.
Joe Morello is another favorite who works wonders with odd time signatures. His short piece in this video is classic Morello and exposes a lot of his technique since he starts the set by playing his kit with his hands! I learned much from that segment.
Blakely is another drummer who I thoroughly enjoyed watching and hearing, and like the Morello clip, I was able to add to my technique. However, as good as Belson's work on this DVD was, the highlight in my opinion was the Lionel Hampton sequences which showcased the genius of this vibe player who was also a master of a drum kit.
You'll pick up a large number of tips and techniques as you watch this DVD a few times, and will find that each drummer highlighted will have a subtle influence on your own style. The entertainent value is as high as the learning value.
This is a must for your collection.
Rufus "Speedy" Jones has the best solo.
Too bad there's no Max Roach or Kenny Clarke.
Not enough Elvin Jones.
Very inspirational though. Wish it was longer.

I expected more for the price. I would have thought this came from the $5.00 basket from Wal-Mart. I returned it to Amazon for 1/2 the price of what I paid for it. Read morePublished on September 8, 2011 by OldRed
