Q#46 – Benny Goodman – “Carnegie Hall Jazz Concert 1938”

Lionel Hampton said (1990): “Benny didn’t leave anything to chance, ever, and that concert was planned right down to the posters and how we’d walk on stage. I sometimes say it was just another day at work, but it was more than that.

Recorded: Jan. 1938

from “The Penguin Jazz Guide – The History of the Music in the 1001 Best Albums”, Brian Morton & Richard Cook, 2010

One of the most memorable concerts in the history of Jazz. For that, one of the key elements in this concert was the drummer Gene Krupa. The man was amazing! In the previous year, Benny Goodman & His Orchestra participated in the film “Hollywood Hotel“. You can see below the short version of “Sing Sing Sing (With A Swing)” (until 3:10) and imagine this amazing concert. Enjoy!
