With a handpicked band, an unerring sense of swing and proven entertainer qualities, Benny Goodman had no trouble whipping the 2,000 jazz fans at the city’s Stadthalle into a frenzy. Notwithstanding to the individual brilliance of its musicians, one of the strengths of this touring band assembled by Benny Goodman was the way it combined a range of orchestral colors with the flexibility of smaller ensembles drawn from among the band members. In Anita O’Day, the bandleader had brought to Europe a singer whose recordings already enjoyed a massive following, millions of fans who were not alone in considering her one of the outstanding white jazz vocalists of the day. In these recordings she demonstrates her versatility and originality—with a spectrum that ranges from interpretations of romantic ballads to lightning quick improvisations with scat vocals. The band’s repertoire offers a kaleidoscopic mix of jazz standards and Goodman classics, giving each performer ample material to work with—the whole program effectively choreographed by the bandleader himself. What we have here is great music combined with top-level entertainment—one would expect nothing less from such a moment in the history of jazz.
