This CD traces Benny Goodman & His Orchestra during their final Victor recordings and their first sessions for the Columbia label. The band did not change all that much during this time style-wise, although such fixtures as trumpeter Chris Griffin, pianist Jess Stacy, drummer Buddy Schutz, and singer Martha Tilton departed. Along the way the key soloists are trumpeter Ziggy Elman, Jerry Jerome on tenor, and Goodman, while Fletcher Henderson spent a period filling in on piano. There are no small-group performances on this CD, but such fine killer-dillers as "The Kingdom of Swing," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," "Stealin' Apples," and "Spring Song."
