I was raised on 78’s of Benny Goodman (who also did 1:00 Jump), Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Bix Beiderbecke. Dad had a 33 rpm of Benny Goodman at Carnegie Hall, which included a fierce “Sing, Sing, Sing” and incredible drum solo by Gene Krupa. My 46 year old brother, who is a drummer, was influenced by that record. I took clarinet lessons after seeing the Benny Goodman Story when I was in third grade.
