Benny Goodman (clarinetist and bandleader)

~ Person

Annotation

Like Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman had a varied and long career, mostly fueled by his performances with his orchestra.
Solo performances were very rare, and most releases should indeed be filed under Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, or one of his small formations.
