Benny Goodman: Wrappin' It Up presents swing fans, jazz scholars, and collectors with newly discovered recordings, broadcasts, and engagements of the famed clarinetist unearthed since Connor's Benny Goodman: Listen to His Legacy (Scarecrow, 1988). The listings of hundreds of previously unknown recordings will delight collectors, while jazz fans will enjoy Connor's intimate recollections of his friendship with Goodman, which bring a human dimension to an artist often known only for his music. Scholars will treasure the treatise on Goodman's arrangements now in the collections at the New York Public Library and Yale University. Wrappin' It Up also contains 28 rare photographs, many never published before, that span Goodman's career in both the recording and movie studio as well as a unique section covering over three hundred previously unknown broadcast recordings from 1935 to 1943. Also included are current prices for Goodman memorabilia, a schedule of Goodman's film and television appearances available on video, a necrology of Goodman's sidemen and associates, and indexes.
