The future "King of Swing", Benjamin David Goodman, was born on the 30th May, in Chicago, Illinois. He was the son of Jewish immigrants and grew up with 11 brothers and sisters. Benny Goodman learned to play the clarinet in a synagogue and took his first steps as a musician on the pleasure boats on the nearby Lake Michigan.
He worked for several years from the middle of the Twenties with Ben Pollack, but also played with several other bands. Goodman met the well-known music producer John Hammond in 1933, and was persuaded by Hammond to form his first big-band…

In April 1976, at the age of 74, the legendary swing saxophonist Benny Waters made a momentous appearance at the internationally famous jazz-blub Stampen often known as “The Pawnshop”, in Stockholm. This album is a memento of this concert and a wonderful musician. Worthy of note is the fact that the pianist on this recording is the late, great and unfortunately the most “underrecorded” Swedish swing piano player Björn Milder – yes, Joakim Milders father! – who was considered by many visiting musicians to be “world class”. And they should know!

In his prime, in the 1970-s and 80-s, legendary Swedish chess grandmaster Ulf Andersson was a Top 10 player with a distinct, immediately recognizable style. He almost never lost a game and kept scoring wins from quiet positions.

Ester Nilsson è una poetessa e saggista ma, sopra ogni altra cosa, critica e ammiratrice dell'artista Hugo Rask, che reputa un genio. Ed è proprio per Hugo, quando lo incontra a una conferenza di intellettuali svedesi, che Ester perde completamente la testa, interrompendo la sua relazione con il fidanzato e intrecciando con l'artista una storia complicata e cervellotica, tragica quanto universale, fatta di continui allontanamenti, riavvicinamenti, inganni e abusi di potere. Non importa che Hugo non sia affatto l'essere perfetto che Ester si era immaginata; e non importa nemmeno che la tenga a distanza con scuse inverosimili. Ester lo insegue, lo ama, rinuncia per sempre alla propria dignità. La loro relazione non sarà l'amore che aveva desiderato, ma un asfissiante gioco di potere..

Anders Widmark was born in 1963, in Uppsala, Sweden. At the age of seven he started to compose and improvise on the piano. Many people have been inspired by the piano playing of Anders Widmark. If he plays blues, jazz, songs or house you will find a very personal imprint. According to the National Encyclopedia he was also “one of the first in Sweden at the beginning of 1990 to mix jazz with hip hop and acid jazz”.

Since Bryn Terfel’s home has always been in North Wales, it may seem strange that he travelled to the Rocky Mountains in the American West to make an album called Homeward Bound. But Terfel has found a true sense of belonging in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is based. The 360-voice ensemble provides the rich and evocative backdrops for Terfel’s ringing bass-baritone on this new set of recordings, which spans material ranging from British and American folk and popular songs to hymns, spirituals and classical pieces. Enhancing their combined musical artistry is the fact that choir and star soloist are united by a surprising amount of shared history.

Appearing with Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and Harry James during the late '30s and early '40s, Helen Forrest became one of the most popular swing era singers – even vocal authority Mel Tormé named her his favorite, male or female. Though her voice wasn't quite as clear as Doris Day's, Forrest was an excellent interpreter, and her sweet vocals proved a solid foil for the Benny Goodman band during 1940 and half of 1941. Collectors' Choice compiled her complete appearances with Goodman on three discs, though they're hardly overloaded at 55 tracks total. The package makes for a lot of great material, including her biggest hits while there, "How High the Moon" and "I Can't Love You Any More (Any More Than I Do)," the latter recorded with top swing guitarist Charlie Christian. Also featured is a previously unreleased track featuring Goodman's own competent vocal (reminiscent of Hoagy Carmichael) on "Jenny."

Benjamin David Goodman (May 30, 1909 – June 13, 1986) was an American jazz clarinetist and bandleader known as the "King of Swing". In the mid-1930s, Goodman led one of the most popular musical groups in the United States. His concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 16, 1938 is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most important jazz or popular music concert in history: jazz's 'coming out' party to the world of 'respectable' music." Goodman's bands launched the careers of many major jazz artists. During an era of racial segregation, he led one of the first well-known integrated jazz groups. Goodman performed nearly to the end of his life while exploring an interest in classical music.
