Benny Goodman "King of Swing" born 1909

Benny Goodman, born May 30, 1909, became known as the "King of Swing".  During his lengthy career, he recorded many hits such as "Stompin' at the Savoy" and "Sing, Sing, Sing".  His music, along with another big bands, were popular during WWII but by the mid-forties, the big band sound wasn't as popular as during the 20's and 30's.

"Sing, Sing, Sing" is my favorite!
