Benny Goodman, clarinet

As a jazz clarinettist Benny Goodman has no peer, and his involvement in his own and other swing bands changed jazz forever. But his enthusiasm and virtuosity led him to interpret the most important works of the clarinet canon and commission new works. This CD release gathers together some of the most notable achievements in the genre of classical music.
