After breaking up his big band in 1950, the world-famous drummer Gene Krupa toured with Jazz at the Philharmonic and led a trio. During 1953-1954 he recorded one septet and two sextet dates for Norman Granz's Clef label, all of which are reissued on this single CD. While Krupa has his solo breaks, the main star throughout is the exciting trumpeter Charlie Shavers, who not only takes witty and chance-taking solos but provided the arrangements and a dozen swing-based originals. Another constant is pianist Teddy Wilson, who is in typically flawless form.
