CD Reviews

The Goodman jazz orchestra at its best!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you can get only one Benny Goodman big group recording, this is it. With some songs from the 40th Anniversary Carnegie Hall concert and others from European concert dates in the '70's, this albums shows that Goodman was the king of collecting great talent and keeping it jumping. Classic versions of "Stealin' Apples","Lady Be Good", "A Smooth One" and, the star of the lot, "Roll "Em", will have you dancing in your living room. Great guest appearances by Lionel Hampton and Mary Lou Williams. Swing at its best and jazziest."
