Front Cover
Scarecrow Press, Jan 1, 1996 - Biography & Autobiography - 179 pages
"Benny Goodman: Wrappin' It Up presents swing fans, jazz scholars, and collectors with newly discovered recordings, broadcasts, and engagements of the famed clarinetist unearthed since publication of Connor's original landmark work. The listings of hundreds of previously unknown recordings will delight collectors, while jazz fans will enjoy Connor's intimate recollections of his friendship with Goodman, which bring a human dimension to an artist often known only for his music. Scholars will treasure the treatise on Goodman's arrangements that are now in the collections at the New York Public Library and Yale University. Wrappin' It Up also contains rare photographs, many never published before, that span Goodman's career in both the recording and movie studio, as well as a unique section covering more than three hundred previously unknown broadcast recordings from 1935 to 1943. The book also includes current prices for Goodman memorabilia; a schedule of Goodman's film and television appearances available on video; a necrology of Goodman's sidemen and associates; and indexes."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
