Fletcher Henderson led the most commercially successful of the African-American Jazz bands of the 1920s. The smooth sound of his orchestra gave birth to the Swing style of the next decade. Over time he employed many of the more illustrious names in jazz, including Louis Armstrong and Coleman Hawkins. In 1939 he joined the Benny Goodman Orchestra as pianist and arranger and is alleged to be the first musician of color to play with an all white band. Listening to this CD you will come to realize the impact of his arranging and style which was in advance of most bands of the day. The impact his music is evident. While listening to the Goodman Carnegie Hall concert you will become aware of how Fletcher Henderson’s enormous contribution to the world of jazz helped Benny Goodman to become the so called “King Of Swing”.
