The King of Swing, Benny Goodman, sells this superb compilation himself with these brilliant and atmospheric live performances. Good rich warm transfer to CD that brings out Benny's spectacular playing. A must for every jazz clarinet enthusiast's collection. Just turn up the volume and enjoy!

SOME tried to enjoy swing recordings of the 30s and early 40s, but the recording technology was the obstacle they couldn't overcome... Well THIS cd has it all: Benny Goodman playing at his highest level, with some older cats and with much younger players, but this time in nice stereo recordings (some live, some studio)...
All the tracks are from the 70s and the personell on this very much swinging and POSITIVELY BEAUTIFUL compillation is (just to give you an idea what to expect):

- Bill McGuffie (p), Bucky Pizzarelli, Louis Stewart (g),Lennie Bush (b), Bobby Orr (dm) - tracks 1, 2, 13
- Zoot Sims (ts), Peter Appleyard(vb), B. McGuffie (p), B. Pizzarelli (g), Hal Gaylor (b), Mousey Alexander (dm) - tracks 3, 5, 6, 16
- delete Sims and Appleyard - track 4
- a lovely arranged big band (including Jack Sheldon, Warren Vache, Buddy Tate, Frank Wess) - track 7
- Lionel Hampton (vb), John Bunch (p), Cal Collins (g), Michael Moore (b), Connie Kay (dm) - track 8
- C. Collins (g), Percy Heath (b), C. Kay (dm)- track 9
- Tommy Fay (p), Eddie Duran (g), M. Moore (b), C. Kay (dm)- track 10
- W. Vache (tp), J. Bunch (p), C. Collins (g), P. Heath (b), C. Kay (dm) - track 11
- add Scott Hamilton (ts) - track 12
- another nice big band - track 14
- W. Vache (tp), Wayne Andre (tb), B. Tate (ts), Mary Lou Williams (p), C. Colling (g), M. Moore (b), C. Kay (dm) - track 15

If you want to be convinced that Benny was a great clarinet artist, and hot jazz player, check this CD (Vache, Sims, Appleyard and others contribute some nice music as well, but it's a BG show...)
