The Benny Goodman Orchestra's Famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert

A 75th Anniversary Celebration

Bandleader and clarinettist Pete Long (Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, Echoes of Ellington and ex-sax star of Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra) presents a superlative recreation of one of the greatest concerts in jazz history.

Benny’s line up that night included stars such as trumpeters Harry James and Ziggy Elman, drummer Gene Krupa and pianist Jess Stacey. It was also the first time ever that black and white jazz musicians appeared together on the concert stage in the USA with Lionel Hampton on vibes, Teddy Wilson on piano and stars of the Duke Ellington and Count Basie Orchestras making guest appearances.

At the original concert, the musicians played without amplification and the wonderful acoustic of Cadogan Hall makes it possible for our anniversary concert to do likewise.
