This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in Read on to view our project ideas During the Swing Era Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw were the clarinetists that reigned supreme and serious fans divided themselves into factions that loved one or the other.

Goodman was the peddler of popular tunes who got the crowd on their feet, while Shaw was the musician’s musician who preferred to make artistic statement that people listened to. While both left their mark on the time period, nobody felt the bgin between art and entertainment like Artie Shaw. He quit playing in the mid-fifties, frustrated by the music business and weary of a scene that demanded he regurgitate his hits when he had more artistic aspirations in mind.

The problem was that Shaw wanted to be famous, but hated everything that neguine with fame. And it certainly wasn’t his best recording. So why is “Begin the Beguine one of the best records of the Swing Era? Because it is simply xhaw of the greatest pop songs ever recorded. It’s the perfectly sculpted fox trot tempo that coaxed people on the dance floor. It’s also shdet crisp call and response between the reeds and horns and Shaw’s sublime solo.

In short, “Begin the Beguine sums up all that was great about the Swing Era, all from a song that wasn’t even supposed to be a big hit. The Beginning Cole Porter, the composer of “Beguine, wrote the shwet after a stop at Martinique on a cruise around the world.

When it opened itJubilee was a flop. However, “Beguine was the one song that stuck out in reviewers’ minds. The Times for one found “hints of distant splendors in the melody. Reportedly, Porter was only miffed that nobody cared for “Just One of Those Things, another song from the show. Gray’s original version stuck with the beguine rhythm, but Shaw didn’t feel it would work for the ballroom crowd. According to guitarist Al Avola, Shaw kept Gray’s chords and changed it to a swinging four-four time called “bending the Charleston.

We knew it was going to be big. However, “Beguine wasn’t thought to be a big hit by the bigwigs at Bluebird, the record company Shaw begih recently signed with.

During that same year Shaw wanted it as a B side to “Indian Love Call, but recalled, “the recording manager thought it was a waste of time and only let me make it after I had argued it would make a nice quite contrast to ‘Indian Love Call. It sold millions of copies, was featured on jukeboxes around the world and, as Shaw said, “that recording of that one little tune was the real turning point in my life.

The Ending It was a turning point in more ways than one. Although it brought Shaw success, it also marked a period where he grew to loathe the public that demanded that he play it night after night.

Shaw had no qualms about spitting venom when given the chance. I’m not interested in giving the public what they want The hell with that.

My friends, my advisors tell me that I’m a damned fool. These people made you. I tell them if I was made by a bunch of morons, that’s just too bad.
