The Jazz Show Episode May 30, 2011

Broadcast on 30-May-2011

9:00pm - 12:00am

Tonight The Jazz Show celebrates what would be the 102nd birthday of one of the icons of 20th Century music. The King of Swing: Benny Goodman. I'll be presenting as the Jazz Feature broadcast recordings from various locations where the tri, quartet and band played in the peak years of Goodman's popularity in 1937/38. The trio with Goodman on clarinet, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Gene Krupa on drums was augmented to the Quartet with the dynamo of the vibes, Lionel Hampton. The big band with Goodman, Krupa, trumpet aces Harry James and Ziggy Elman and tenor saxophone star Vido Musso was no less dynamic playing great Fletcher Henderson and Jimmy Munday arrangements. Happy Birthday Mr. Goodman...your music is forever.
