Drum features have always been a big crowd pleaser in the jazz idiom. This outstanding tribute to the original big band drum star, Gene Krupa, features a short, written trumpet solo with plunger, but this exceptional chart is primarily a drum feature with solid big band ensemble sections to drive it along. Full of audience appeal, it's a big band extravaganza set in the style of the famous Krupa swing tunes of yesteryear. An optional flute part is included and the written ranges are: Trumpet 1 to A; Trombone to G; Alto Sax to E.
