B G On the Record: A Bio-Discography of Benny Goodman

£9.99

Product description

Where were you on the night of December 22 1937? Probably doing last-minute Christmas shopping. If you tuned in to CBS late that night, you caught a 30-minute broadcast by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra. Incredibly, this remarkable broadcast, and 11 others like it, became privately available in the 50s and now circulate widely among record collectors who specialize in the music of the King of Swing. Complete information about these broadcasts can be found on pages 199 - 214: mere snippets in the mountain of data amassed in this extraordinary volume. No jazz musician, on records and off, has ever been the subject of such detailed, precise scrutiny.

The dust jacket is a little faded and worn, but the book itself is in very good condition.
