Benny Goodman was known as the King of Swing. His iconic Big Band recordings of the 1930s & ‘40s are instantly recognizable and still popular today. But Benny also featured a wonderful small band that could play it hot– really sizzling, on tunes like Slipped Disc and Airmail Special– and delicate on lovely numbers like Memories of You. This was a trailblazing group and was the first openly integrated band performing in concerts halls and movies.
