Synopsis

Lionel Hampton: Jazz Legend - King of the Vibes
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

Classic Jazz Drummers: Swing and Beyond
Classic Jazz Drummers: Swing and Beyond features film footage of some of the most famous drummers in history. The film includes footage of Sid Catlett, Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, and Ray Bauduc. The movie includes what at the time was the only known footage of Warren Dodds. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
