Benny Goodman & His Orchestra – Sing Sing Sing

Sing,Sing,Sing was written by Louis Prima…

On July 6, 1937, “Sing, Sing, Sing” was recorded in Hollywood with Benny Goodman on clarinet; Harry JamesZiggy Elman, and Chris Griffin on trumpets; Red Ballard and Murray McEachern on trombones; Hymie Schertzer and George Koenig on alto saxophones; Art Rollini and Vido Musso on tenor saxophone; Jess Stacy on piano; Allan Reuss on guitar; Harry Goodman on bass; and Gene Krupa on drums. The song was arranged by Jimmy Mundy. Unlike most big band arrangements of that era, limited in length to three minutes so that they could be recorded on one side of a standard 10-inch 78-rpm record, the version which Goodman’s band recorded was an extended work. The 1937 recording lasted 8 min 43 seconds, and it took up both sides of a 12-inch 78. At its longest, a live performance (with impromptu solos) was recorded and took 12 minutes and 30 seconds. Mundy’s arrangement incorporated “Christopher Columbus,” a piece written by Chu Berry for the Fletcher Henderson band, as well as Prima’s work. Fletcher Henderson recorded a vocal version in August, 1936.[2] The 1937 Benny Goodman recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1982. (wikipedia)
