Benny Goodman - Verve Jazz Masters 33
Listening to the few live tracks on this album, it's apparent that audiences simply couldn't get enough of the man, and I can't get enough either. He still sounds hip today, even though some of these performances are over 70 years old. While I actually prefer the Columbia greatest hits compilation to this one, there are plenty of great songs on this album which do not appear on the Columbia compilation. It's worth owning for Benny Goodman fans and Verve Jazz Masters completists.
Baleeted? No. I support this man and everything he has ever done.
