Gene Krupa. Drummer for Benny Goodman who made the drum intro famous The Sound • The entire song has so many different distinguishable parts. • It first starts off with the well known drum beat that repeats many times throughout the song • You have the brass sections using mutes the entire time which gives it a elephant sound for the entire piece.
The sound (Continued) • The song never gets quiet the entire piece. What it does, however, is adds and subtracts how many instruments are in each part. • Sometimes it’s just the rhythm section and then it adds the trumpets , then at other times it can just be drums and clarinet
Rhythm • AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE SHEET MUSIC, IT IS A VERY SIMPLE RHYTHM, BUT WHEN UP TO SPEED OF THE SONG, IT COULD PROVE VERY DIFFICULT • THEN YOU HAVE THE VERY BEGINNING NOTES AND IT STARTS ON AN OFF BEAT. THAT IS WHAT MAKES THIS SONG UNIQUE
History • the roots of the hot jazz associated with "Sing, Sing, Sing" can be traced back to an earlier performance by Goodman at the Palomar. The current diet of the big band performance was mild pop tunes, which were held to be what audiences favored. But faced with a listless, indifferent crowd, Goodman turned to the band and said something like, "To hell with it, if we're going to sink, we might as well go down swinging,"
History (Continued) • his most lasting contributions to the band were the high-octane, intense instrumentals that were intended to generate excitement within the crowds. "Killer-dillers" like "House Hop" and "Swingtime in the Rockies" helped establish the template for the jump tunes that after Goodman every band had to include in their book, but the most famous of them all was "Sing, Sing, Sing."
