Gene Krupa And Buddy Rich • The Drum Battle At JATP



Review by Lindsay Planer
This set was initially issued as the 15th instalment in Norman Grantz's Jazz at the Philharmonic series of LPs, EPs, and 45s. As that highly collectible compilation of performances has been out of print since the 1960s, many of the volumes were later issued under the respective artists' name. As the title would imply, Drum Battle: Jazz at the Philharmonic features the artistry of the Gene Krupa Trio with Buddy Rich (drums) sitting in on a few numbers as well as the inimitable jazz scat vocalizations of Ella Fitzgerald on a hot steppin' and definitive "Perdido." Opening the disc is Krupa's trio with Willie Smith (alto sax) and Hank Jones (piano) providing a solid and singularly swinging rhythm section. While Smith drives the band, Krupa is front and center with his antagonistic percussive prodding. "Idaho" is marked with Jones' rollicking post-bop mastery as he trades solos with Smith and can be heard quoting lines from Monk before yielding to Smith. The cover of Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady" sparkles from beginning to end. Jones' opening flourish sets the tenure as Smith settles into a smoky lead, containing some nice syncopation and regal augmentation from Jones. Krupa primarily provides ample rhythm work on the emotive ballad. Smith's diversion into "Stormy Weather" is notable for exemplifying the lyrically improvisational nature of this combo. The tempo is significantly stepped up on a cover of Benny Goodman's "Flying Home," which is full of high-spirited playing and garners a sizable reaction from the audience. The lengthy "Drum Boogie" is one of Krupa's signature pieces and is greeted with tremendous enthusiasm. Buddy Rich climbs on board for a one-on-one duel with Krupa, whose styles mesh into a mile-a-minute wash of profound percussion. The duet segues into an inspired and free-form jam on "Perdido," with Fitzgerald belting out her lines with authority, class, and most of all, soul.

Este set se emitió inicialmente como la décima quinta entrega en el Jazz de Norman Grantz en la serie Philharmonic de LPs, EPs y 45s. Dado que la compilación de actuaciones altamente coleccionables ha estado agotada desde la década de 1960, muchos de los volúmenes se publicaron más tarde con el nombre de los respectivos artistas. Como lo implica el título, Drum Battle: Jazz at the Philharmonic presenta el arte del Gene Krupa Trio con Buddy Rich (batería) en algunos números, así como las inimitables vocalizaciones de Jazz Scat de Ella Fitzgerald en un hito. Definitivo "Perdido". Al abrir el disco se encuentra el trío de Krupa con Willie Smith (saxo alto) y Hank Jones (piano) que brindan una sección de ritmo sólida y singular. Mientras Smith maneja la banda, Krupa está al frente y en el centro con su insultante percusión antagónica. "Idaho" está marcado con el increíble dominio de Jones después de la bop al intercambiar solos con Smith y se puede escuchar citando líneas de Monk antes de rendirse a Smith. La portada de "Sophisticated Lady" de Duke Ellington brilla de principio a fin. La apertura de Jones establece el mandato cuando Smith se asienta en una pista llena de humo, que contiene una buena sincopación y un aumento real de Jones. Krupa proporciona principalmente un amplio trabajo de ritmo en la balada emotiva. El desvío de Smith al "Clima tempestuoso" es notable por ejemplificar la naturaleza líricamente improvisada de este combo. El ritmo se incrementó significativamente en una versión de "Flying Home" de Benny Goodman, que está llena de juegos de alto espíritu y genera una reacción considerable de la audiencia. El largo "Drum Boogie" es una de las piezas de la firma de Krupa y es recibido con un tremendo entusiasmo. Buddy Rich se sube a bordo para un duelo uno a uno con Krupa, cuyos estilos se combinan en un baño de una percusión profunda de una milla por minuto. El dúo se convierte en una mermelada inspirada y de forma libre en "Perdido", con Fitzgerald cantando sus líneas con autoridad, clase y, sobre todo, alma.
