Liner Note Author: Wayne Knight.
Photographer: Wayne Knight.
For this fairly rare live session, Benny Goodman heads a nonet that includes some all-stars (trombonist George Masso, Al Klink on tenor, vibraphonist Peter Appleyard, pianist John Bunch, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli and bassist Slam Stewart), plus the relatively unknown drummer Joe Corsello and English trumpeter John McLevy. Most of the repertoire is somewhat typical (and greeted enthusiastically by the German audience during the Hamburg concert) but contains a few surprises: Slam Stewart's feature on "Lady Be Good," and a rendition of Stephen Sondheim's "Night Waltz," a hot Dixieland-ish "That's a Plenty," and a rare version of "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon," which finds Goodman playing the famous Ziggy Elman fralich interlude on clarinet. ~ Scott Yanow
