’72 All-Star Swing Festival: Great Drummers Throughout

SKF NOTE: I just came across this 1972 Timex All-Star Swing Festival with great drummers throughout.

Harold Jones with Count Basie, Rufus “Speedy” Jones with Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa with Benny Goodman Quartet, Alan Dawson with Dave Brubeck, Bobby Durham (?) with Ella Fitzgerald, and Barrett Deems with a Louis Armstrong Tribute band.

Good stuff. Harold Jones is a study in motion. He wastes none of it. Alan Dawson is on his four-piece set of clear Fibes. And Krupa is Krupa. Good music all around.
