Leave us Leap, quite possibly one of my favorite songs of Gene's, from start to finish it is filled with classic Gene-isms, so to say,(with exception to his gum-chewing, yelling and wild facial expressions) .

On the topic of videos, also check out a 1947 short called 'Follow that Music' where he plays 'Gene King'.

If you go to You Tube and search for Gene Krupa and Leave Us Leap, you'll find a clip from a late 1940s movie featuring the Krupa band playing this song. Watch Gene Krupa's technique on the drums. Even with the extra juice he gives it for the sake of the cameras, it's incredible.
