Artist Biography by Scott Yanow Allmusic.com

The first drummer to be a superstar, Gene Krupa may not have been the most advanced drummer of the 1930s but he was in some ways the most significant. Prior to Krupa, drum solos were a real rarity and the drums were thought of as a merely supportive instrument. With his good looks and colorful playing He became a matinee idol and changed the image of drummers forever.

"Along the Navajo Trail" is a country / pop song, written by Dick Charles Larry Markes and Edgar De Lange in 1945. It was the title song of the 1945 Roy Rogers film “Along the Navajo trail.”
