Only “twenty-something” (born 1984), Dave and his All-Star Sextet play Benny Goodman’s biggest hits and “swing-era” classics: Moonglow, I’ve Got Rhythm, Body and Soul, Slipped Disc, Sing, Sing, Sing, and many others. Bennett is a jaw-dropping clarinet prodigy who brings to life the music of “The King of Swing” with incredible technique, expression and sensitivity. Vocals made famous by such Goodman singers as Peggy Lee and Helen Forrest are brought to life by jazz singer Carol McCartney.
