"A Tribute to Benny Goodman" - Arrangments by Benjamin Baczewski, Aaron Copland, Artur Guza / Andrzej Wojciechowski, clarinet; Lukasz Borowicz, Gdansk Academy of Music Chamber Orchestra

Notes & Reviews:

This is a special release, inspired by crossing boundaries, looking for the universal music language, and referring to the notion of pure beauty. In each of these spectacular tracks the clarinet plays the leading role. This recording is dedicated to the memory of Benny Goodman, a legend of the American jazz and the 'King of Swing', who elevated the clarinet playing to the rank of art. Similar to Elvis Presley, Goodman significantly contributed to the popularization of 'black' music among the white audience in the times of race segregation proving that the art and beauty are able to cross the boundaries between people dictated by disdain and prejudices.
