Let me off uptown - Gene Krupa, Anita O'day, Roy Eldridge



Let me off uptown is one of those classic swing songs, maybe it's not considered a jazz standard, but when it comes to swing dancing, you're bound to hear it every now and then.

The most known version of Let me off uptown is the one above with Gene Krupa, Anita O'day, Roy Eldridge. This was also the very first swing music tip I gave on this blog.

In the middle of the video clip there is a dance sequence, does anyone know who the dancers are?

Maybe you are as silly as Miss D and I: whenever we hear the song on the dance floor, we act out the banter between Anita and Roy.

What do you think of the video clip? Please comment.

What a stunning clip :)}

Gene Krupa, a great band, Roy Eldridge, sparky dialogue and dancers getting 'groovy' to the beat. For my money, this faster rendition is a lot better than the popular Krupa/O'Day recorded version.
