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. Staple holes at upper left blank corner. Fine condition.
