Benny Goodman – [1938] The Famous Carnegie Hall Jazz Concert

A unique performance, made available to everyone. Often wrongly described as the first Swing concert, the The Famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert by Benny Goodman is a milestone in the history of Jazz concerts. Just listen to the final track of the concert and you know what I mean. (The cover image is self-made with an image of Benny Goodman from 1971.)

Sing Sing Sing – With A Swing is a legendary Jazz standard. This performance is a 10 minute long frenzy with instrumental soli. The first minute introduces the famous theme, well structured by an excellent drum performance of Gene Krupa. Swing at its best.
