Okay, think about it. It's 1938. Benny Goodman and his band are on stage at Carnegie Hall. Gene Krupa's on the drums. NO ONE was featuring the drums before this. In fact, as far as I know, no one was playing the drums like this before Gene Krupa. I would love to have been there. It must have been electrifying. The song: "Sing, Sing, Sing" written by Louis Prima.

I love Big Band music. Even though the "song" is called Sing, Sing, Sing, there's no singing in it. -- Benny Goodman, Sing, Sing, Sing

    Having lived during the big band era and dancing to it in my teens, I gotta love all of it. I still dance to it....around the house by my little old lonesome at 82.....and I still love it. Little old lonesome....(a widow who remembers dancing to it with her handsome young husband.)
