: Stan Brager asks :-
: "What are some of your Benny Goodman favorites?"

Too many to list really but the raw excitement of the up tempo 1937/38
Camel Caravan airchecks have always rated highly with me, Stan. Likewise
much of the late 20's/early 30's studio recordings.

Andy Ling responded:
: At risk of being drummed out of DJML I'm going to suggest
: Bach Goes To Town

The - or rather - an aircheck of this tune written by blind Brit pianist,
Alec Templeton, is also included in my favourites. Jazz or not, it swings
like the clappers. The studio version is OK but more restrained.
