The documentary Lionel Hampton: Jazz Legend: King of the Vibes documents the career of the jazz musician who popularized the vibraphone. His career spanned over a half-century. The documentary contains film of the performer and still photographs that help cover eras for which no motion film exists. Among the celebrities that can be seen performing with Hampton are Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman, and Betty Carter. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Gene Krupa Tribute: Swing, Swing, Swing!
In the '30s, drummer Gene Krupa shifted percussion from supportive background music to a standalone art form, tout seul. Millions so worshipped his ability with the sticks that he became something of a heartthrob and even a screen idol, with onscreen appearances in such films as Howard Hawks' 1941 Ball of Fire. The home-video release Swing! Swing! Swing! presents 14 back-to-back, unexpurgated Krupa performances, where he plays with such greats as Lionel Hampton, Charlie Ventura, Anita O'Day, and Benny Goodman. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
