“THE KING OF SWING”: INSCRIBED VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH OF BENNY GOODMAN

GOODMAN, Benny. Original publicity photograph, inscribed. New York: Music Corporation of America, circa 1938. Sepia-tone glossy print, measures 8 by 10 inches. $450.

Vintage photograph of Goodman, clarinet raised before a CBS microphone, inscribed: “To Bob, Benny Goodman.”

The famous clarinetist “could translate whatever came into his head directly into the clarinet. He breathed and talked on the instrument to the point where the clarinet seemed to disappear and all you heard was Benny” (Askew). From 1936 to 1939, Goodman headlined the CBS radio broadcast Camel Caravan.

Only tiny pock-mark to background. A near-fine print, inscribed.
