Original Louis Prima version (with lyrics) was first recorded in 1936; instrumental version by Benny Goodman was 1937, but the 1938 Carnegie Hall version is the one is probably best known.

3. I figured. B4 my debut! 😤 But I do remember New Year's Eve galas and Goodman and his band on TV.

I love enough of current popular music. Then again, the current New Year's Eve shindigs televised... The performers. The songs. Ai-yi-yi! And the guests know ALL the words to the songs!

I consider myself still hip but, sheesh! Whatta difference from way back in the day.

Keith Moon (THE WHO). TIME TO GET TRIBAL!

5. Love this song!

And yes, I challenge anyone to sit still while this song plays. Gene Krupa was the best!

6. Because there's no such thing as too much Benny

Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson and Gene Krupa, doesn't get any better

8. I love Benny Goodman! I listen to him all the time.

And Gene Krupa was an amazing drummer. This version of "Sing, Sing, Sing" features him. This is the only kind of music that actually makes me want to get up and dance. Much before my time, but I'm an old soul...

That would be it.

10. Thanks, all....


It's a great piece of music, great arrangement, and damn near infectious in terms of moving...

Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
