i do like the sweet sound of the clarinet, and here it is nicely paired with the vibraphone & pianoforte (maybe “pair” isn’t the right word) in a selection of benny goodman tunes. benny goodman! what’s not to like? i’m sure i’ve heard clarinet & vibraphone together before, but am drawing a blank… be that (& my memory) as it may be, it’s a lovely combination, both having such round mellow tones, and the pianoforte adds a sharp spikiness, a tart ingredient keeping the dish from being too sweet. the original seeder, ‘survivor69’ warns about few transmission dropouts, but i think it’s ok obviously.
happy st. patrick’s day!

well, this is a tribute to benny goodman, so there is not much to sasy – all tracks are announced by dulbecco – warning: a few transmission dropouts were unfortunately featured all along the broadcast, all of them dropouts have been edited out, but you can still hear the transition glitch somewhere on theses tracks. the dj mentions this problem during the radio outro, saying that many listeners were complaining for the (many) dropouts, but from the studio he could not perceive anything. also included in the folder, marked as track 00, a radio introduction in italian with bio notes and commentaries – this intro runs for 4’23”, you can skip downloading it if you don’t understand italian.
