The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra (LCJO) will perform an array of songs by or associated with Goodman, joined by special guest clarinetist BOB WILBER and saxophonist and clarinetist PAQUITO D’RIVERA. Dubbed the “King of Swing,” Goodman was the first celebrated bandleader of the Swing Era. From the 1930s onward he helped to popularize jazz by leading one of the most admired big bands of his time, performing in films, recording extensively, contributing to the war effort, and touring internationally until his passing in 1986.
