Sing Sing Sing - 1938 Carnegie Hall

I just heard a local high school jazz band close their performance at  the Festival of Lights in Ave Maria with their rendition of Sing Sing Sing.  They did a good job, but I had to come home and find the great Benny Goodman version, from the extraordinary 1938 Carnegie Hall concert.  Truly one of the greatest jazz performances ever.  If I were doing a time capsule about American culture of the past 100 years, I would have to include this as one of its great moments.
