    Jim Chapin on Freddie Gruber's Drumming 1949-50



    SKF NOTE: This recording, which I wasn't sure I still had, is one of my favorite moments from preparing to write a profile of Freddie Guber. I came across an unmarked cassette this morning, inserted it into my tape player, and there was Jim Chapin describing Freddie Gruber's drumming circa 1949.

    I remember this conversation well, and Jim's singing how 19-year old Freddie Gruber played drum solos in 1949-50 is amazing. Jim Chapin, one of the great drum authors/teachers was one of the few people alive who was familiar with Freddie some 40 years earlier.
