Live from the London House is a quartet side recorded in 1958 with drummer Gene Krupa leading a band that included Eddie Wasserman on reeds and winds, bassist Jim Gannon, and pianist Ronnie Ball. The program is made up of relatively brief renditions of standards, from Juan Tizol's "Perdido" to Irving Berlin's "I Never Knew" to Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays," et al. The sound source feels like a radio transcription, but is otherwise fine and rather noiseless. ~ Thom Jurek
