Butch Miles Salutes Gene Krupa

The Butch Miles Sextet

January 1982

I had a ball doing this album with Butch. Roy Eldridge was the jazz trumpet star in the Krupa band and we did some of his famous tunes like “After You’ve Gone” on this album.  When I was working at Eddie Condon’s Jazz Club on 52nd street where I recorded my first live album I got to hang with Roy and play with him. Roy was working at Jimmy Ryans up the street and we used to check each other out during our breaks. Those days were truly a taste of the glory years of 52nd street in the 40s !  Glenn Zottola
