Synopsis

Album Description
Double vinyl LP pressing. The clarinetist and band leader was at the peak of his career and showed no fear of contact with the sanctuary of high culture when this concert was recorded. 'The first concert at Carnegie Hall was one of the great moments in my life. We did not know what would happen, how we would sound and what the audience would think of us. Until we were there, we knew not even how many people would come. So we just went out and played.'-Benny Goodman. Membran. 2009.

CD Reviews

This set WAS the best available, but no more
11/03/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I have this set, and I was never satisfied with the muffled sound and separated tracks. I knew about the two left-out songs, the shortened solos, the spliced-in applause. I always hoped that somehow the original recording could be issued, complete and unedited. Then, I heard the rumors of such a set in the works. And now it's available, also from Columbia. So, unless you want it as a collector's item, forget this set. I'm sure Columbia will quickly take it out of print, if they haven't already, as their new set is 1000% superior. See my comments under 'Live 1938 at Carnegie Hall-Com '."
