Thanks! Share it with your friends!
“Roll ‘Em” (Mary Lou Williams).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENNY
Golly gee, I love swing!
Think this is great???
Try the broadcast version found on the MGM 3 LP set called the Benny Goodman Treasure Chest. That was done at a much faster tempo with better solos! It takes asses and kicks names!!!
No, this was NOT rock and roll!! These musicians could read music, play inprompto solos and on and on!
I like how they keep the rhythm section quiet, unlike in high school jazz bands, the bass is overplaying the band, and you ALWAYS hear the drums.
The best music ever!
Sex played to music.
Aye me Poppy used to listen to this in his day.
Does this sound like the theme tune to the cartoon 'George Shrinks' to anyone else?
Most comment instruments used in jazz: bass, trumpet, drums, saxophone, trombone, cello, violin, clarinet, piano and guitar right?
Can someone post the live concerts of this band from 1937-38? Would love to hear Roll 'em Pete and St Louis Blues from the Hartford Armory and Pittsburg dance hall respectively.
Benny was an accomplished classical musician as well as a popular musician. His recording of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto is a landmark, as good as the best.
That biting trumpet section of Harry James 21, Ziggy Elman 23 and Chris Griffen 22. Wow! Goodman and Krupa werea couple of relative geezers at 26 Lol!. That youth and intensity really shows through.
Recorded on July 7, 1937.
Reminiscent of Albert Ammons' & Pete Johnson's "Roll 'Em, Pete." (See Joan Cartwright's post.)
Composed by Marylou Williams
still my favorite all time song
I think Roll em has a bit of a different meaning now…
not sure ,when this came out?. Had we already killed patton for his wanting to join with Germany and attack the raping judeobolchevik Russians ?
Were they talking about rolling some joints?
i guess you could say this was rock and roll before Elvis!
Love how they make it jump and pop.Keeping that tempo light and free and easy.
This and 'Peckin" are two of my favourite B.G. arrangements. Thanks for posting, as I hadn't heard either one in a while. Cheers! Tom
Benny Goodman was quite possibly one of the greatest artists of the era. A true masterpiece.
