Solid Gold Instrumental Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Despite its dumb title none of these 20 performances were million sellers, this double LP contains many of the highpoints of what was Benny Goodman's most interesting orchestra. The arrangements of Eddie Sauter and Mel Powell in particular challenged BG while giving him an entire new book of material and led to many classic moments. Highpoints include "Air Mail Special," "Clarinet A La King," "Clarinade," "Love Walked In" "String of Pearls" and "Jersey Bounce."
