Krupa, and Bernstein

Since posting the Gene Krupa video, below, I have watched it again, several times.

The video, which I love, has put me in mind of Leonard Bernstein.

Both Bernstein, in his conducting, and Krupa, at the drums, threw themselves, bodily, into their work; the physicality was striking, electric, beautifully expressive.
