Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Producer: John Hammond.
Muze PNote Compilation producer: Steve Buckingham.
Muze PNote Principally recorded live at Carnegie Hall, New York, New York in 1938 and 1939. Includes liner notes by Steve Buckingham, John Hammond, John Sebastian, Charles Edward Smith, and Harry "Sweets" Edison.
Muze PNote Digitally remastered by Doug Pomeroy.
Muze PNote This two-CD set was, in its time, considered a prime live music document of its period, capturing performances by Benny Goodman and a host of other jazz, blues, and gospel performers at a legendary Carnegie Hall concert (most renowned among blues enthusiasts because concert organizer John Hammond headed south seeking Robert Johnson as a performer, only to learn of his death, and choosing Big Bill Broonzy to play in Johnson's place). The recordings were surprisingly good for their time, and as a musical document this show was about equal in importance to Goodman's own 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. This version is still worth hearing and owning (especially for those living on a budget), although Vanguard has superceded it with a much more extensive (and expensive) box set that assembles tapes found since the original LP release, and identifies tapes that were re-recordings of material done at the concert. ~ Bruce Eder

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (9/24/99, p.147)
- "...the historic 'From Spirtuals to Swing' concerts of 1938 and '39 were high points of U.S. culture. This outstanding 3-CD set of those performances and a related studio date unite...touchstone artists...and a dizzying collection of swing-era giants..." - Rating: A

Mojo (Publisher)
(7/00, p.122)
- "...The presentation of black musicians...alongside what [producer John Hammond] saw as the contemporary black folk tradition, the popular music of the day, swing....The excitement is there to be heard....If you didn't make it to the shows, this release virtually takes you there."
