First of all, a tribute to Benny without a clarinet player is like the Brat Pack without Sammy. But that said, if you're a fan of big band trumpet legend Ziggy Elman this disc is for you. If not there's not much here that's interesting or new. Recorded in the 50's, pianist Stacy has assembled a crew of good swingmen to blow on some big band standards made famous by the King of Swing. Elman easily outshines everyone on this pretty average performance. Not highly recommended but not a complete dud...some decent toe-tapping swing that will make you think of Benny but probably make you yearn for the real thing versus more from this ensemble.Oh yeah, the girl on the cover is cute.

I completely wore out my LP copy many years ago, and searched for years for a replacement LP, then a CD copy. A superb record, and "Blues For Otis Ferguson" would be my second favourite Jess Stacy performances (after the January 16th 1938 "Sing Sing Sing" of course!) Mr Stacy was listed in the Los Angeles telephone directory, and once when I passed through the airport there I rang and had a brief chat with him. John Hammond said of him "there is no nicer man in the music business."

Surprisingly good versions of numbers from the. Benny Goodman songbook.sax/ clarinet man Heinie Beau arranged these aided and abetted by many of Bennys former sidemen.Recorded in 1954/56 ,these arrangements played by guys like Ziggy Elman,Murray McEachern,Allan Reuss, Babe Russin are as fresh as the day Benny first performed them.This album has been hard to come by so I welcomed the chance to replace My worn out vinyl L P. get it while its still available .
