O’s Notes: Benny set the world on fire in 1935, bringing swing into the forefront as the country’s preferred popular music. And what followed was an evolution of his band featuring such great musicians as Fletcher Henderson, Lionel Hampton, Bunny Berigan And Teddy Wilson. There are 21 songs here, all recorded in Goodman’s prime and like other Centennial Series Collections, the liner notes are highlighted on a DVD that is well done!
