Let’s Jam

They say white men can’t swing. Not Benny Goodman. He was the king of swing who held down the Savoy’s dance floor nights after nights. Goodman had a lovable sound and fluid flow on the clarinet. His live performance of “Runnin’ Wild” is both sweet and swing. His drummer Gene Krupa drops quite a few “bombs” (snare and bass combo) up in the joint.
