This is a cool collection. Benny Goodman performed a famous concert in 1938 at Carnegie Hall, which happened to be recorded and released 12 years later. However, this album was culled from CBS radio broadcasts from the previous year and not released until 1956. So get ready for some raw Benny Goodman taken from the early airwaves with Volume 47: Swing’s King Concert 2
