I am trying to write a essay on Gene Krupa and his involvement in the History of jazz drumming.
I would be great if anyone could even suggest at least one book / Journal / ebook that I could look to read.
Look around this site. Baby Dodds and Chick Webb (among others) predated him as far as solos go. But he's certainly one of the most influential and most documented.
