Sing, sing, sing.

This isn’t Benny Goodman or Artie Shaw, but it could be.

I love jazz music, and one of my favorite musicians in that genre is Benny Goodman. Most people know of him as a band leader in the 1930s and 40s, but after he disbanded his orchestra, he went on to do music in a quartet and then later, a quintet. I happen to really enjoy what he did in the quartet the most, so as a special musical bonus, here’s a performance of the Benny Goodman quartet from 1972 at Lincoln Center in New York. It’s all four original members (Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, and Teddy Wilson), plus guest bassist Duvivier. Enjoy!
