Pete Long and his All-Star Orchestra
Joan Viskant (vocalist)

Arguably the finest jazz spectacle ever, Benny Goodman’s 1938 Carnegie Hall concert is revered worldwide for  bringing jazz to the public in a form that has never been surpassed, as well as being the first time black and white    musicians had appeared together on the concert platform in the USA. The star clarinettist Pete Long (leader of Ronnie Scott’s Orchestra) may not have Gene Krupa, Harry James, Lionel Hampton and Teddy Wilson in his All-Star Goodmen Orchestra, but he has gathered together the cream of British jazz musicians to come to Yorkshire and recreate all the passion and frenzy of the original concert. Featuring the famed American vocalist Joan Viskant (famously likened by Ray Charles to Doris Day), it features all the great numbers from the original Carnegie Hall evening, including numbers by Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Richard Rodgers, not to mention the celebrated number Sing, Sing, Sing and other arrangements guaranteed to make Malton swing!
