Cuban Ken thank you both for stopping. :-)

Cuban, since you liked this version of Sing, Sing, Sing we think that you'll agree with Ken
that Benny Goodman's premiere of the number half a century earlier is a Swing Milestone in itself.

take a peek at it on another of our blogs hooooodah thunk!...agin? this one has Gene Krupa at his prime best on drums.

thanks again,
