Benny Goodman signs a document with Park Recording Company, Inc. extending the deadline.
Carbon Typed Document Signed: "Benny Goodman" in ink for Park Recording Company, Inc., 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1959 July 21. In letter form to Cunningham & Walsh, Inc. New York, New York. Begins: "Gentlemen". In full: "Reference is made to the agreement between us dated October 24, 1958. Paragraph 23 therein provides that you have an option to require us to furnish you a program package comparable to 'Swing Into Spring' for broadcast between April 1 and April 15, 1960. The time for your exercise of such option is hereby extended from the close of business on August 1, 1959 to the close of business on September 1, 1959. Very truly yours, PARK RECORDING CORPORATION". Goodman has crossed off "CORPORATION" and written: "Company, Inc." Goodman's TV show, Swing Into Spring, had aired from 1958-1959. He had also released an album of the same name in 1941. In 1959, he released two albums: In Stockholm 1959 and The Benny Goodman Treasure Chest. After playing with bands in the 1920s and early 1930s, clarinetist Benny Goodman (1909-1986) organized his own orchestra in 1934. In 1935, he formed the Benny Goodman Trio with Gene Krupa and Teddy Wilson; it became a quartet in 1936 when Lionel Hampton joined. Goodman, who became known as "The King of Swing", was the first major white bandleader to integrate Black and white musicians. Performing on radio and in motion pictures in addition to recording, his orchestra became nationally famous. Composers such as Béla Bartók, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and Morton Gould wrote music for Goodman. Lightly creased and soiled. Chipped at blank left edge. Overall, fine condition.
