About
From the late 1940's, when Benny Goodman signed an exclusive contract with Capitol records. "The Happy Blues" by The Hollywood Hucksters features a bit of good-natured ribbing between Goodman (still "The King Of Swing") and Capitol's top bandleader at the time, the progressive Stan Kenton. And along the way you'll hear some great jazz solos by Benny Carter on alto, Benny Goodman on clarinet, and Charlie Shavers on trumpet.
