Swing, Swing, Swing
The Life & Times of Benny GoodmanBook - 1992
Swing music has for so long been synonymous with the standards and mainstream that we've forgotten how innovative and controversial the form was. The hot world of Swing, spearheaded in the 1930s by the Benny Goodman Orchestra, elicited a social uproar that can be compared only to that of the Beatles. Now Firestone offers a new biography of the brilliant, difficult Benny Goodman. 30 photos.
