Product Description:

Benny Goodman went to Europe many times, and was greatly successful on his ventures to the Old Continent. One of these visits consisted of his one-week participation in the American section of the Brussels 1958 World Fair. He went with his big band (but also performed some songs in smaller formats), to which the celebrated singer Jimmy Rushing was added as a special attraction. As mentioned in the original liner notes, the band was very warmly received, and many of their performances there were preserved for posterity. The group's overwhelming success led Columbia to acquire part of the recordings originally made by the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company and to release two different LPs titled Benny in Brussels Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, which were later compiled into a single 2-LP set. To the original 18 tracks present on both LPs, we have added two extra tracks to this edition, which were performed at the same concerts but not included on the original album: Benny's readings of his classics 'Stompin' at the Savoy' and 'Flying Home'. The tracks are perfect closers for a truly amazing set.
