Jewish Values: Once Upon a Time in Chicago: The Story of Benny Goodman

Publisher:

Number of Pages: 
0 p.
Note: 
A short, easy to read, and vividly illustrated biography of Benny Goodman. It tells of his childhood, his large, poor family, his shyness, his discovery of the clarinet, and of his rise to fame as the "King of Swing." The illustrations have a jazzy look and the book design is attractive. Jewish content is secondary to music but this is still a charming introduction to a great Jewish American musician.
