Combine this with the King of Swing's earlier-era Live at Carnegie Hall recording and you have not only Benny Goodman's two best works, but two jazz cornerstones. B.G. in Hi-Fi was recorded five years after the clarinetist had his last permanent big band (he'd work mostly with smaller combos from here on out), but all the players found on this disc are superb. And, though the big-band style may have been way past its prime in '54, Goodman certainly isn't. On tunes like "Get Happy"--one of the more spirited romps on this disc--he swings with vigor and topnotch playing. Eight cuts feature a big band; the remaining 12 are quintets. Four previously unreleased tracks (including a great rendition of "Ain't Misbehavin'" played by his quintet) are included. Excellent sound throughout, and some truly swinging, classic tunes. --Jason Verlinde

Customer Reviews

Excellent Hi-Fi mono sound quality.

The original B.G. In Hi-Fi lp had 12 songs on it, the 45 ep's had more.

Like "The Benny Goodman Story" (green album cover version), this is a swinging session with studio musicians. Recorded in the 1950s, it features 12 big band tunes and 8 small group recordings. Excellent Hi-Fi mono sound quality. Highly recommended.

Back in the 50s these tunes came out on 45 rpm and I loved them. Later they came out on 10 and 12 inch 33 1/2 rpm. Now I have them on CD. In spite of some cool reviews I think Benny is in fine form on this CD. The ensemble is crisp and swinging. The rythmn section, while not Basie, is clean and supportive. Mel Powell is sparkling and swinging. The real star is Ruby Braff who has never sounded better. The CD has a couple of tunes that were not on the 12 inch vinyl and one of them, "I would do anything for you" is a stunner. A great CD.

This CD is packed full of tunes that are sure to make you want to get up and move around. The sound quality is good, the tunes are great, and the band is swinging. If you want a great CD by Benny Goodman that will keep you wanting more then buy this one. You will not regret it.

Several people complained that several songs are missing: King Porter Stomp, Moonglow, and Sing,Sing,Sing. To end the confusion, those titles are included on the next Goodman CD - "Mr. Benny Goodman, Benny Goodman Story", ("The Green Album") released by Capitol in 1955. The original B.G. In Hi-Fi lp had 12 songs on it, the 45 ep's had more. This Cd has 20 songs on it, which includes previously unissued recordings. My recommendation is to purchase the Green album along with this one, and it will complete Goodman's 1954-55 Capitol series. You shouldn't be disappointed.The Benny Goodman Story

Supurb CD! If you just purchase one Goodman CD--let it be this one. None of his big bands ever sounded more mature, well rehearsed, and sharper than this group. This is about as good as big band music gets! (The sound quality is very nice, too).

I love big band music. It reminds me of my childhood when we moved to Detroit Michigan after World War II.

Here is the great man himself starting and ending with the famous "Let's Dance." There are 18 of his greatest tunes in between: tunes like "Airmail Special,"Stompin' at the Savoy," "Blue Lou" & many more. This is swing at it's very best & if you want to know how "bop" originated, you must understand syncopated swing first. It's fun music and comes very highly recommended. Thanks.
