The King of "Sing, Sing, Sing" and co. rock the house on this epochal gig
2005 | Label: Avid Entertainment / The Orchard

This is the one that started it all, that pushed jazz into the concert hall (Carnegie, no less) and proved jazz could be high art and dance music, too. But its virtues aren't merely historical — this thing cooks like crazy. It's the high water mark of the swing era. From the opening number, "Don't Be That Way," when Gene Krupa takes his wowza drum break, Harry James comes roaring in with his… read more »

Freddy Green solo edited out. Cost more than 5.99.

justlisten

I came to this album seeking a rare Freddy Green solo on "Honeysuckle Rose". The track is only available when buying the entire album, so I did that. The album download charged my account more than the advertised price ($5.99) and the solo I wanted is edited out of this version. See all reviews FIRST as one listener suggested there is a more worthy rendition of the concert with better sonic quality, etc. Disappointed!

Amazing

Ddutch

The concert not only featured the Benny Goodman big band, trio and quartet, but also presented a number of guests (Bobby Hackett; Count Basie, Freddy Green, Walter Page, Buck Clayton, Lester Young and Johny Hodges, Harry Carney and Cootie Williams). Goodman and James delivered probably the best performances of their careers. "Honeysuckle Rose" whith Count Basie on piano, Freddy Green on guitar, Walter Page on bass and Gene Krupa on drums create a base full of tension and relentless swing. The Basie - Page duets are interrupted twice by spontaneous ovations. The final part of "Sing Sing Sing" was to end with a high C by Goodman and the big band final; but after the Goodman solo, Jess Stacey (Goodman's big band pianist), who had already done a magnificient accompagnment of the second part, starts one of the most original (and romantic) solos of his career with the obvious approval of Goodman who moves the microphone towards the piano.

Irritating (as always) that unused credits in one month are not carried forward to the next; hence additional credits needed to download all tracks.

Warning!

nanibgal

This is great music indeed, and I also have fond memories, as it was one of my first two lp's when I was 11! However, DO NOT get this version. It is a bootleg of an earlier edition. The Sony version that is up here as well is a better deal as far as points go, but it also has the full version of the incredible Honeysuckle Rose--this was has a solo edited out. If you really want to, buy the Jasmine release, which has improved sound.

Incredible? Yes!

brick45

But that doesn't mean I don't wish it had Benny's 1938/39 version of "And The Angels Sing" with Martha Tilton's vocal. Then instead of being "incredible" it would be perfect!

What a bargain!

Incredible Album download deal!

Great Album

Noslensj

I can't add much to what other reviewers have said: I just wanted to add my recommendation. I also used WavePad software to combine the three Sing,Sing,Sing tracks into a single track - as it should be.

Why Swing Was King

fingerpickingood

This album, in all its warm and electrifying timbre, shows the concrete virtuoso musicianship Goodman could hire and personally exhibit. Beautiful piano lines, sweet melodic wind playing, and Gene Krupa's unmatched drumming make this an epic date with nods to jazz's rich past. Make your introduction to swing with this album and acknowledge a seminal period in jazz history.

Benny Goodman's #1 album

Jazzman

I was 15 when I purchased my first jazz LP - Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert. It's full of 10's Don't Be That Way, One O'Clock Jump, Life Goes To a Party, Honeysuckle Rose, Avalon, I Got Rhythm, China Boy, Stompin' At the Savoy, Dizzy Spells, Big John's Special! Rachel's Dream & Nagasaki are 9.9s and After You've Gone, Slipped Disc, and Tiger Rag are 9.8s in my opinion. Don Voltmer, www.AspenPublicRadio.org jazz DJ. 1/03/09

Quintessential recording for any collection

MusicMeister

This recording, time and time again, is recommended as the one album to have in your collection. I have the Columbia release of this and can't recommend it enough. While the recording suffers from the technology of the day, it's a masterpiece in it's own right. Even if you're not a fan of Big Band or Benny Goodman you should download this right away. BTW, I agree about Sing, Sing, Sing being broken up as incorrect. This song should be played as a single 10+ minute track. It's like cutting the Mona Lisa into 3rd's so you can see parts of it in three different cities.
