Benny Goodman's volume in the Ken Burns Jazz series ranges from one of his first recording appearances, on a 1927 side by Ben Pollack, all the way to the late '50s. Of the 22 tracks, there are many highlights including "Body and Soul" from his trio (with Teddy Wilson and Gene Krupa), plus two songs from his legendary 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. More than most volumes in the series however, this one was forced to bypass the original versions of Goodman classics ("King Porter Stomp," "Don't Be That Way") in favor of usually inferior radio versions. Still, Ken Burns Jazz is a cheap, easy way for listeners to introduce themselves to the exuberant swing of Benny Goodman. ~ John Bush
