Today, is the anniversary of the birth of Benny Goodman born on May 30,
1909. I plan to listen to a day's worth from the early stuff with Ben
Pollock to his first great band, the trio, and  the quartet on Victor, to
the 40's band with arrangements by Eddie Sauter and the marvelous sextet
recordings, to his flirtation with be-bop, and to the many recordings with
essentially pickup groups for the remainder of his days.

I won't get though all of my favorites today. What some of your favorites?
