Benny Goodman’s 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert

Benny Goodman

Pete Long’s All-Star Goodmen Orchestra

with US singer Joan Viskant 

Ex Jools Holland arranger and star soloist Pete Long doesn’t have Gene Krupa, Harry James, Lionel Hampton and Teddy Wilson in the All-Star Goodmen Orchestra, but he has the cream of London’s big band players guaranteeing all the passion and frenzy of the original concert.  Few musicians would attempt a recreation of Goodman’s work, but Pete is one of the finest jazz clarinettists in the world and relishes the challenge.

 

All the repertoire and scores from Carnegie Hall will be featured –

Sing, Sing, Sing; Don’t Be That Way;  Body & Soul;  One O’Clock Jump;  China Boy;  Big John Special and the other fabulous Fletcher Henderson, Mel Powell and Eddie Sauter arrangements that sparkle with vibrancy.  An added bonus  will  be famed American singer Joan Viskant,  described by Ray Charles as  reminding him of Doris Day. She joins the party to replace Martha Tilton in the original concert.

Sunday 14th January 7.30pm

Tickets: £22, £20 (Conc) + 76p per ticket booking fee.
