Benjamin David “Benny” Goodman (May 30, 1909 – June 13, 1987) was an American jazz and swing musician, clarinetist and bandleader; widely known as the "King of Swing".
In the mid-1930s, Benny Goodman led one of the most popular musical groups in America. His January 16, 1938 concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most important jazz or popular music concert in history: jazz's 'coming out' party to the world of 'respectable' music."
Even today many classical musicians have no idea where the beat is and playing off the beat is utterly impossible for them like Billy Holiday did and this recording does and many reggae musicians do.
