Chick Webb - Spinnin' the Webb: The Little Giant by : Chet Falzerano : Chick Webb


Chick Webb's short professional career (he died at age 30) served as an inspiration to young drummers at the dawn of America's big band/swing era. Simply stated; Webb is the guy who inspired the guys; who inspired the guys; who inspired you. Gene Krupa: “Chick taught me more than anyone.” Buddy Rich: “As a soloist; Chick had no equal at the time.” Papa Jo Jones “I don't speak of Chick Webb; the drummer; I speak of Chick Webb; the epitome.” And Webb accomplished this as a black man crippled with a debilitating disease in a segregated society. His contributions as a drummer/bandleader changed the course of music in America; not the least of which was discovering Ella Fitzgerald. Author Chet Falzerano chronicles Webb's greatness in this celebration of the “little giant” including the recreation of Webb's drum set.
