Free Film Screening – Benny Goodman Kingdom of Swing

Benny Goodman: Adventures in the Kingdom of Swing is the definitive Benny Goodman story. It presents a profile of the extraordinary musician and bandleader who helped America through a depression and a war with the optimism and virtuosity of his music. Adventures in the Kingdom of Swing tells Goodman’s story through rare home movies of band members, never before released rehearsal footage and audio tracks, and a commentary by Goodman himself. Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Charlie Parker, and Louis Armstrong are featured in performances and anecdotes in this entertaining biography of an American icon.

Produced by WNET’s Emmy Award-winning American Masters series, this is a story of a man who, with clarinet in hand, rose to become one of our country’s cultural icons. 60 min. Please note this is a LIVE – IN PERSON event.
