According to the Internet source given below, Eugene Bertram Krupa was an American jazz drummer, band leader, actor, and composer known for his energetic style and showmanship. His drum solo on Sing, Sing, Sing
(1937) elevated the role of the drummer as a frequently used solo voice in the band.
He is also known for defining the standard drum kit used today in collaboration with brands Slingerland and Zildjian. Krupa was considered "The founding father of the modern drumset" by Modern Drummer magazine.
I saw him either on film or television in the early 1960s. Having already been a side-drummer member of the HMS Collingwood Volunteer Band where everything was monstrously loud, I was always impressed how he could play his drums quietly.
