Happy Birthday Benny Goodman

Jazz clarinetist and renouned bandleader Benny Goodman was born May 30, 1909 in Chicago, Illinois. "Dubbed the 'King of Swing,' Goodman was also a complex personality whose relentless pursuit of perfection was reflected in his approach to music." If you would like to know more, you can read a biography of Goodman at Brittanica Biographies in the Biography Reference Center.

If you want to hear Goodman's music, he has several albums and singles available on Freegal. You can stream as much as three (3) hours of uninterrupted music without commercials per day. If you find something you really like, you can download as many as five (5) mp3s a week.

If you'd prefer to watch some historic performances, don't forget our Access Video on Demand collection. Here's a video from Ken Burns' Jazz
