Tribute to Benny Goodman


By alternating jazz and classical music, I tell the story of how Goodman was striving his whole life to become a great classical clarinetist although he is known as the “King of Swing.” I also emphasize how his unique upbringing paved the way for him to lead one of the first racially integrated jazz band during the time of segregation.
