Benny Goodman Signed Window Card (Also Signed by Teddy Wilson and Lionel Hampton). Benny Goodman was truly a pioneer in the development of jazz and big band music. Goodman studied music at the Hull House in Chicago, and became an important part of that group of Chicago musicians that included Pee Wee Russell, Frankie Teschmacher, Max Kaminsky, Jimmy McPartland, Muggsy Spanier, the Dorsey brothers, and Glenn Miller. Within this group, Bennie can be considered one of the true "inventors" of the modern swing band. In 1932, Goodman formed his first band, it became a huge hit with audiences, and Benny was crowned "The King Of Swing", a deserved title he still holds today. One of Goodman's main contributions was the concept of a "band within a band". He made magnificent recordings with his trio, quartet, and sextet. His small group sessions with Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, and Gene Krupa are as brilliant today as when they were recorded over 60 years ago. This great card, showing Goodman with his clarinet outstretched, is signed by Benny in addition to his pianist, Teddy Wilson, and his vibraphonist, Lionel Hampton. A fantastic lot! Small pinholes on each corner would matte or frame out. Accompanied by COA from Jazz & Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
