Benny Goodman- Live at Carnegie Hall 1938

Everyone has heard Benny Goodman’s orchestra, from commercials, to the radio, it’s playing at the gas pump and in the dressing room at the mall.
It is another classic Americana band that doesn’t seem to get played-out and is still very listenable three-quarters of a century later.
This performance was said to have pushed jazz to be accepted and respected both in music circles and by the American public as a whole.
