Benny Goodman at Carnegie Hall, 1938

I'd been busy on a book, with no time for posting on the blog, when a friend told me about the Benny Goodman concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. It is one of the great musical performances/events of all time.

You can buy a boxed CD set of the complete concert on Amazon.
