Thu, Feb 7 - Fri, Feb 15

  • Personnel
What can one say about Benny Goodman that hasn't already been said? No one can compare in terms of the quality of his band, his versions of popular tunes of the time, his instantly recognizable sound and vibrato, his technique. As the unequivocally named King of Swing, no one but Benny Goodman stands as such a monolithic symbol of the Swing Era. Jesse Cloninger and The Jazz Kings in big band formation pay tribute to The King with a full-on Evening of Swing, reprising awesome renditions of classic Goodman: "Get Happy", "Body And Soul", "Moonglow", "After You've Gone", "Tea For Two", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Bugle Call Rag", "Sing, Sing, Sing", and, of course, "Flying Home".
