Sing sing sing Krupa Gene
Gene Krupa plays Sing sing sing, the drumshowpiece he made famous with Benny Goodman's Orchestra in the 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. Now more than 30 years later, probably very early seventies, Gene performs it with an Orchestra obviously under the direction of his former collegue Lionel Hampton. Lionel plays a nice vibes solo as well.

This was done in 1971 for Canadian television. It was a show around Hampton called "One Night Stand". Gene is clearly very ill. It ends in a drum "battle" with Buddy Rich. Through the use of clever musical figures, Gene throws Buddy way off. However, Buddy's reverence for Gene is well shown.
