Benny Goodman A Supplemental Discography


353 pgs.
The Scarecrow Press, Publ.

This discography gathers materials uncovered since the last bio-discography of Goodman in 1996. It is annotated, presented chronologically, updates some previously known information and adds nearly 100 new discoveries, including more than 65 previously unknown radio broadcasts and films. Jessup presents details about live appearances ranging from the mid-1980s back to the 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert, including an analysis of the controversial 1999 Sony reissue of that concert. An additional discography of smaller, collector-oriented labels describes nearly 400 reissues and collectible LPs, tapes, and CDs, and details of all 182 shows of the famous "Camel Caravan" radio series (1936-1939) are offered in print for the first time. The volume concludes with a list of those associated personally or professionally with Benny Goodman who have passed away since 1996, as well as indexes by song title and musician.
