Welcome to the Shake

Click below to hear a short sample of Grammy nominee Chris Daniels doing his best Elephant MC and really bring this song to life!

 

“Welcome to the “Shake” is also in the Big Band Swing genre and a direct tip of the hat to the wild and wonderfully improvisational drumming style of Gene Krupa as heard on Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing”. Krupa was one of the first drummers to use a full drum kit of tom toms and additional cymbals in the recording studio.
