BENNY GOODMAN
Benny Goodman sends a typed note to gossip columnist Radie Harris of thanks for the letter of sympathy.
Typed Note signed: "very thoughtful/of you./Benny", 4¼x3½ card. Imprinted: "Benny Goodman" at upper margin. No place, no date. To gossip columnist Radie Harris. In full: "Thank you for your kind letter of sympathy. I greatly appreciated it." After playing with bands in the 1920s and early 1930s, 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. Slightly soiled. Fine condition.
