Description

    Gene Krupa Signed Window Card. Gene Krupa came out of the rich musical talent pool that existed in the Chicago of the 1920's. He cut his first record in 1927, with a band put together by Eddie Condon. In 1934, Krupa joined Benny Goodman's new orchestra and became a star. Krupa is probably single-handedly responsible for making the drum a popular solo instrument during the swing era. His work on the recording "Sing, Sing, Sing" may be the best example of this. Gene eventually formed his own band, which enjoyed great success, but he always returned to reunion performances with Goodman's small group. This card features a nice photo of Krupa at his drums, ands he has signed on his image. Small corner pinholes would matte or frame out. Accompanied by COA from Jazz & Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.
