In 1938, Benny Goodman raised the bar for Jazz from smoke-filled bars to concert hall stage with his Carnegie Hall performance.  This dance band wizard sealed his coronation as "The King of Swing" on that night.  Bob DeAngelis has a dynamic program that will pay tribute to the 80th year of Benny Goodman's famous concert.
