Saturday Night Dance Party!


This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

"Sing Sing Sing" - Benny Goodman on clarinet, Harry Goodman on bass, Gene Krupa on drums, Harry James on trumpet.

"I Got a Heart Full of Song" - Benny Goodman on clarinet, Gene Krupa on drums, Lionel Hampton on vibes, and Teddy Wilson on piano.  They don't make 'em like this any more!

Only 190 days til...(you know what!)

  5. It's an unfortunate soul who can't respond to this.
    Although I just don't get 'pure' jazz' (though wish I did, and, Lord, have I tried!) this brand of it is just terrific. It sure gets the adrenalin flowing.

    Btw: You may already know, A.M., but Benny Goodman was a man of wide repertoire. There were several modern classical composers (such as Aaron Copland) who wrote concertos and other pieces for him. In fact back in the 60s and 70s his recording of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto was considered the definitive one to have, but had to give way only when superior recording techniques came along.

    1. benny could play both classical and jazz genres easily. big band music is part of my sunday morning 9a-1p on our local national public radio station. it's so relaxing and toe-tapping at the same time!
