Well, first off I didn't order this online. I bought it at a store. And it was just what I was looking for. Any clarinet player who is interested in jazz should definitely check this out. Not only does this book include 30 solos played by Benny Goodman, it also gives tips and pointers on how to play with "swing" and other techniques.
This book will definitely help you, but it may also hurt you if you're not willing to be patient and take it slow at first. If you don't you'll never hit those really high 32nd triplets.

This book has a great variety of classic Benny Goodman tunes, but if you really want to play them with style, it's crucial that you listen to recordings as you learn to play the songs. A demo CD would have been a great addition to this book. Personally, I use Spotify or YouTube to look up the songs as I'm playing, because I like to hear the way they were actually played. If you treat the music like you'd treat a classical concert piece, it just won't sound the same.

One minor complaint about this book is the binding. It uses standard perfect binding, which prevents it from laying perfectly flat. If you really bend it back, it's fine - but I know that bothers a lot of people when it comes to music books.

Lastly, if you're looking for a book with a lot of commentary about Benny's methods + exercises to help you play like him, choose "Benny Goodman's Clarinet Method" instead. You can find it here on Amazon. This book (the one I'm reviewing) is 99% songs with just one or two pages about Benny Goodman's playing. The Clarinet Method book has roughly 60 pages of exercises, method commentary, and stories before getting into roughly 30-35 pages of songs. Of course, the best solution is to buy both. There is little to no overlap in terms of songs, so you get something different with each one.

More of the kind of music I like. Benny's music is what I grew up on; so what can I say. I only hope I can play it half as good as he could.
