Product Description:

Although Benny Goodman was best known for his star vocalists and big band, it is his small group recordings that stand the test of time as unadulterated jazz with no frills. Primo Records provides proof in the form of 38 classic swing performances recorded between 1935 and 1938 by Goodman's trio and quartet, with pianist Teddy Wilson, drummer Gene Krupa and vibraphonist/vocalist Lionel Hampton. This excellent collection also contains a selection of live recordings including excerpts from Goodman's legendary 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. Primo's Trio and Quartet Showcase is highly recommended as both a tribute to Goodman's groundbreaking racially mixed small group swing band and a useful introduction to the fundamental jazz repertoire commonly in use during the '30s. ~ arwulf arwulf
