Was Benny Goodman really the “King of Swing”? Unfortunately, this marketing nickname has garnered more debate than it deserves. Who can say who really was the “King”? But one thing is certain: Benny Goodman played and recorded a LOT of really swinging music in his lifetime. He was one of the finest clarinet players who ever lived, and created a unique sound that is still recognizable and fresh today. None other than the great composer and bandleader Duke Ellington remarked in the early 1940’s in a statement that “swing has gone stale” that the only band playing anything interesting (other than his own of course) was the Goodman group.
Goodman developed a style born out of his upbringing in Chicago in the 1920’s that incorporated many influences. Jazz was all over Chicago, being played by the greats from his hometown and the recent transplants from New Orleans such as the fabulous Jimmie Noone who was one of his earliest heroes. Goodman also infused his music with the klezmer sounds of his own Jewish background, as well as classical music that he studied as a child. In fact, his early small band recordings were often referred to as “Chamber Jazz”.
Goodman also had the sense to surround himself with the best arrangers and side- men the jazz world had to offer, regardless of race. Fletcher Henderson arranged some of the most iconic big band masterpieces of the swing era, which Goodman and his men played to perfection. The Goodman small groups were the first openly integrated jazz group in the U.S. The fire of those early recordings featuring the amazing talents of Teddy Wilson on piano, Gene Krupa on drums, and later Lionel Hampton on vibes, is still thrilling. Goodman also stayed ahead of the curve by hiring Charlie Christian to perform with him on the new fangled electric guitar. This paring brought forth iconic riff tunes that hearken the be-bop era to come.
There were wonderful singers as well, starting with the swinging hit- maker Helen Ward, who recorded the earliest #1 chart topper- “These Foolish Things”- with the Goodman band in 1936. The band then brought on Liltin’ Martha Tilton who sang so many great Tin Pan Alley favorites with the big and small bands, as well as Cole Porter’s klezmer infused “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”. Arguably the greatest big band singer of all- Helen Forrest (who also sang with Artie Shaw and Harry James) chimed in with a #1 hit of her own: “Taking a Chance on Love” in 1940. And of course there was the iconic Peggy Lee with her sultry “Why Don’t You Do Right?” in 1942.
In recording the music of Benny Goodman, we have tried to pay homage to the great musicians, singers, composers and arrangers that made his music so wonderful. It is not our intent to copy, re-create or transcribe the recordings of the original Benny Goodman groups. (That would be an act of pure folly!!) It is our interpretation of these iconic themes- done our way, with of course a humble nod to those who first created it. We hope you enjoy it. ~Paul Cosentino, Boilermaker Jazz Band
