thursday night music club


benny goodman swing band - medley

this clip from hollywood hotel features two of the bg band's biggest hits of the time, "i've got a heartful of music" and "house hop," combined with "avalon," by the benny goodman quartet.

watch for the trumpet solo by a young harry james, the duet by benny and lionel hampton, and gene krupa kicking butt on the drums towards the end. plus, rudy vallee introduces it all!

Swinging! Ever see the movie called Swing Kids? It's set in Nazi Germany and the kids were considered rebels for promoting American Negro music.
