// William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

This concert will feature Joe Gransden's Big Band and a special guest  clarinetist, Allan Vaché, bringing to life Benny Goodman's crowd-pleasing hits. Born in Chicago in 1909 - the ninth of twelve children - to humble Jewish immigrants from Poland and Lithuania, Benny Goodman became one of the most popular American artists, reigning as "The King of Swing" until his death in 1986 at age 77. Over the years, he played with the greatest figures in jazz: Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Mildred Bailey, Bessie Smith and countless others. Joe Gransden and his 17-piece orchestra are the soul of live Jazz and Big Band. The concert is a part of the Atlanta Jazz Festival's 31 Days of Jazz.
