BENNY GOODMAN ORCHESTRA, TRIO & QUARTET - BENNY GOODMAN


Known as 'The King Of Swing' Benny Goodman learned to play clarinet at age of 10. He played in Jazz bands at a young age and went on from sideman to bandleader forming his first band in 1934 and toured the world from then on. He was the catalyst for the swing era, contributing to the development of the "Swing" style of Jazz, inserted Afro-american Charlie Christian as a member to his sextet, turning the electric guitar into a popular jazz instrument and helped integration of people of color in the USA. He explored Bebop and studied classical repertoire. In 1962, his Orchestra toured the Soviet Union (former Russia), after the Cuban missile crisis, and he was later honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
