Show Info

“Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (The New York Times) Peter and Will Anderson return to 59E59 Theaters (Songbook Summit, The Joy of Sax, The Count Meets the Duke) with a tribute to two American icons, clarinetists Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw for one week only! 

Raised in poverty in Chicago, Benny Goodman was a classical clarinet prodigy who sparked an international swing craze in the 30s, and premiered the first jazz concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. Artie Shaw was a composer, author, and master clarinetist, pushing musical boundaries by blending American swing with European and Latin styles. Both swing-era bandleaders were among the first to racially integrate their bands, and their musical legacies have helped define the cultural identity of America.
