LEAVE US LEAP ∽ Or: SOME HOT CHICKS MEET GROOVY GENE IN A FLICK

That’s the spirit of 1945: The battle was won, and the music took over again. — Hot, and deftly swingin’ music with invisible strings attached.

Enjoy Gene Krupa & His Orchestra in a wonderful chart by Ed Finckle, featuring Nino Tempo on drums, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Charlie Ventura on tenorsax, Tommy Pederson on trombone, Teddy Napoleon on piano, and Mr. Gene himself on drums.

It’s the very first time I have ever seen the complete scene from that forgotten film, entitled George White’s Scandals (1945).

Enjoy the ride!
