Preview: The Gene Krupa Story @ The Pizza Express, Soho - July 13


Krupa, O'Day, Denmark Street - it has all the makings of a big band super gig. At lunchtime on Saturday (July 13) at the Dean Street (Soho) Pizza Express the Demark Street Big Band will be telling the story of one of the great jazz drummers, Mr Gene Krupa.

The Denmark Street Big Band, assembled and directed by Paul Burch, comprises London-based A-listers (subject to availability, these guys are so busy - West End shows, studio recording sessions, jazz gigs in and out of town!) taking on a range of projects. The latest is The Gene Krupa Story. The set list is likely to include Leave Us LeapDrum Boogie and Drummin' Man. And, what's more, the fabulous Jo Harrop will be singing Anita O'Day with the band - Bolero at the SavoyBoogie BluesLet Me Off Uptown...can't wait! MD Burch promises a Goodman-Krupa dust-up, it should be fun! Will Ms Harrop be wearing a sensational hat, a la Ms O'Day? Either way, our girl (our County Durham born girl!) is the tops. 
Russell
Doors at 12:15, first set 1:15. Tickets (£15) from 020 7437 9595.
