Benny Goodman Today

Benny Goodman brought the lights back on! 3days of no power were over this evening and celebrated rightly so with the sweet jazz sounds of Benny Goodman. I cranked it as we cleaned and ran every appliance we owned to clean our pad. We are so tired of living like pioneers ~ the romance of living closer to the source  on this west coast rainforest island ~is gone.. we want city! 

Now to the album. Within one song we knew this was in the TOP 30 of 2012. Fab cover art & write up on album reverse. If you click on photos, you can read them. My sweety also loved it. I got it for 10 cents years ago, making this album a total score. Live at Carnegie Hall 1938 was a HUGE deal. It was an evening for the elite, to prove that jazz and swing belonged in contemporary music. Check out this adorably educational video. It takes a few mins  to load.  

And this is the 36th anniversary of the 1938 carnegie hall concert! 

*amazing.
