Is this Benny's group with Red as a guest or the other way around? Red was touring and working with a group of his own for several years, even backing SInatra in Australia in 1959.

Benny rocked that solo. Very tight group. Would have loved to hear John Bunch jump in for a solo.

@clarinettistwalt- They recorded those same duet parts as far back as 1947 (for Capitol, with Mel Powell on piano).

D. Russell Connor, in his discography, "Benny Goodman–Listen to His Legacy", lists this performance from an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on June 19, 1960. He credits John Markham (not Shelly Manne) as the drummer and John Mosher on bass, in addition to the musicians named in the information section above. Connor also indicates that four other tunes were performed on that program.

It's not Stan Levey either. But whoever it was he did what he was supposed to.
i detected Jerry Dodgion holding alto in the background.
Thanks for this clip, live Jazz is the best!

The performance is phantasmagorical. The musicians make it look so easy.

The swing just reaches right inside and raises your spirits.

Love it
