Annotation

Note that in addition to its very first incarnation known as "Benny Goodman and his Boys", the orchestra apparently used the moniker "Benny Goodman's Modernists" is some (rare?) occasions. Also note that some late (reissue) labels have improperly used this moniker to cover early cuts by Goodman's small formations.
