This Sunday – May 21st at 3 PM for JAZZ CONVERSATIONS
with Host Frank De Ligio “The King of Swing”
Benny Goodman had the most popular band in the land in the ’30’s and early ’40’s. His breakthrough was comparable in scale to Frankie and Elvis and the Beatles. And his bands (with Bunny Berigan, Harry James, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Christian, Helen Forrest, Peggy Lee and many other jazz immortals) made brilliant music too.
Jim Heymann, a longtime contributor to Jazz Conversations and an expert on this music, has chosen, for listening and discussion, some of the best of Benny’s jazz performances in large and small settings.
Join us to listen and discuss the music of this amazing contributor to American Jazz.
Location: Small Conference Room @ the Greenburgh Public Library.
