Gene Krupa on drums and last but not least one of the greatest original piano breaks ever played by just Stacy as this was the last number the band was scheduled to play. And with the end of the evening inside the band gave his finest performance of the night seemingly playing for its own pleasure as much as that of the enthusiastic
audience. Twelve years after the concert the set of recordings of the evening's performances turned up in a closet in the goodman home. Happily for us they were reproduced on long play records by Columbia. And now we can relive a part of that long ago night in Carnegie Hall. Here is Sing Sing Sing. Thank. You.
